Set up a variable that divides the teams into two groups, those that had a winning season and those that did not. There are 162 games in the season, so define a winning season as having won 81 or more games. Next, divide the teams into two salary groups. Let the 15 teams with the largest salaries be in one group and the 15 teams with the smallest salaries in the other. At the .05 significance level is there a relationship between salaries and winning?

Formulate a hypothesis statement regarding your research issue.

Perform the five-step hypothesis test on the data using a nonparametric hypothesis test. Idenitfy what type of test you used

1. State the null hypothesis, state the alternate hypothesis
2. Select the significance level- 0.05 selected for this
3. Identify the test statistic
4. State the decision rule
5. Take a sample and arrive at a decision

Please include your raw data tables and the results of your computations using both graphical and tabular methods of displaying data and results.
