In this problem, assume that the distribution of differences is approximately normal. Note: For degrees of freedom d.f. not in the Student's t table, use the closest d.f. that is smaller. In some situations, this choice of d.f. may increase the P-value by a small amount and therefore produce a slightly more "conservative" answer.

Suppose that at five weather stations on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, the peak wind gusts (in miles per hour) for January and April are recorded below.

 Wilderness District 1 2 3 4 5 January 137 128 134 64 78 April 114 110 114 88 61

Does this information indicate that the peak wind gusts are higher in January than in April? Use α = 0.01. Solve the problem using the critical region method of testing. (Let d = January − April. Round your answers to three decimal places.)

 test statistic = critical value =

Are America's top chief executive officers (CEOs) really worth all that money? One way to answer this question is to look at row B, the annual company percentage increase in revenue, versus row A, the CEO's annual percentage salary increase in that same company. Suppose a random sample of companies yielded the following data:

 B: Percent increase for company 16 22 24 18 6 4 21 37 A: Percent increase for CEO 20 20 28 14 -4 19 15 30

Do these data indicate that the population mean percentage increase in corporate revenue (row B) is different from the population mean percentage increase in CEO salary? Use a 5% level of significance. Solve the problem using the critical region method of testing. (Let d = BA. Round your answers to three decimal places.)

 test statistic = critical value = ±
