# Correlation and significant level steps

I have got 24 subjects I did a correlation stats on them to to find out if there is a correlation between the time spent doing online research compatred to off line research i hypothes that the more online research that is done the less off line reserch will be don. In doing the correlation I got this figure-0.117967285 I did a scattergram and it produced a line going from left down to right. My problem is i don't know if this is a correlation that is positive or negative. Now I have the minus number above I am not sure how to do someting clled a pearson's r to get a significance level of P 0.5 and once i have this P how do i express this with my minus figure above is this all you do to get a correlation and your significance wanrranted?? Pls help I encloe mey data
