The second finding, there was a positive influence between X2 and Y variables which was showed by two ways in interpreting the result of correlation where the value rxy=0.735 was between 0.600 – 0.800, that meant high influence and by comparing the value of rxy with ttable was 0.205<0.735>0.267 that meant rxy was higher than ttable. The last finding, there was a positive influence between X1, X2 and Y variables altogether which was proved by two ways in interpreting the result of correlation where the value was between 0.800 – 1.00, that meant very high influence and by comparing the value of with ttable was “0.205<0.82969>0.267” that meant was higher than ttable.
