# Are America's top chief executive officers (CEOs) really worth all that money? One way to answer this question is

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 1% level of significance. Are the data statistically significant at level *α*? Will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis?

Group of answer choices

Since the interval containing the P-values has values that are smaller than the level of significance, the data are not statistically significant and so we reject the null hypothesis.

Since the interval containing the P-values has values that are smaller than the level of significance, the data are statistically significant and so we reject the null hypothesis.

Since the interval containing the P-values has values that are larger than the level of significance, the data are not statistically significant and so we fail to reject the null hypothesis.
