Fortherunstest,inColumnVIoftheabovetable,thetotalnumberofpositivevalues(N1),andthetotal

So,fortheRunstest,wehaveN1=677,N2=720,N=N1+N2=1397,andR=80.
So,E(R)=+1= +1=698.84

Then,for95%confidencelevel(orequivalently,5%significancelevel),ifobservedRfallsbetween

Now,E(R) + 1.96σR=698.84+1.96*348.34=735.42
