Covariance between X and Y for ungrouped data

Let $(x_i, y_i), i=1,2, \cdots , n$ be $n$ pairs of observations then the covariance between two variables $X$ and $Y$ is denoted by $cov(x,y)$ or $s_{xy}$ and is given by $$ \begin{aligned} Cov(x,y)=s_{xy} &=\frac{1}{n-1}\sum_{i=1}^{n}(x_i -\overline{x})(y_i -\overline{y})\\ & =\frac{1}{n-1}\bigg(\sum_{i=1}^n xy - \frac{(\sum_{i=1}^n x)(\sum_{i=1}^n y)}{n}\bigg) \end{aligned} $$
