# [R] Stats Package Fix

``` Good afternoon,

Using this file, with the tab for Growth_Value (I have pasted some code
below), if I add the argument *exact = F *it produces the Wilcoxon signed
rank test with continuity correction. The description documentation leads
me to believe that's the wrong argument (should be the "correct" not the
"exact" argument. I am using R Studio Version 1.2.1335 running R 3.6.1

This was posed in our Business Statistics Class, taught at Utah Valley
University, of which I am a senior undergraduate.

A response by tomorrow would be ideal, but I would still like an answer
even if that timeline is too aggressive. Thank you for your consideration.

Wilcoxon signed rank test

V = 40, p-value = 0.1162
alternative hypothesis: true location is greater than 5

Wilcoxon signed rank test

data:  Growth_Value\$Growth and Growth_Value\$Value
V = 40, p-value = 0.2324
alternative hypothesis: true location shift is not equal to 0

> wilcox.test(Growth_Value\$'Growth', mu=5, alternative="greater", exact=F)

Wilcoxon signed rank test with continuity correction

data:  Growth_Value\$Growth
V = 40, p-value = 0.1106
alternative hypothesis: true location is greater than 5

*exact a logical indicating whether an exact p-value should be
computed.correct a logical indicating whether to apply continuity
correction in the normal approximation for the p-value.*
