# Maths Statistic emergency help needed !!! watch

1. Hi guys,

pls help me I have an exam soon...

i am doing the rank correlation coefficient differences method question, I don't quite understand it... Basically the question said I have to rank the samples from highest to smallest but there's same number for two of the samples, sample A is 32 and sample B is also 32 (32 is the highest so it should be ranked 1) but there's two of them... Do I rank them both as 1?

If I recall correctly the convention is to rank them both as 1.5
