The pre-training and post-training scores of the 40 individuals are recorded in the data file below.

Use excel format and functions to solve the following:

(a) Using a 10% level of significance, do the given sample data support the claim that the organization's training program is increasing the new employee's working knowledge of computing?

(b) Using a 1% level of significance, do the given sample data support the claim that the organization's training program is increasing the new employee's working knowledge of computing?
