t = 2.93

p = 0.0084

2.      Do employees take more than 1.4 weeks of vacation?

3.      What reasons should the vice-president provide to the president to justify the recommendation on employee burnout?

4.      Based on the data, is the presence of employee burnout an issue that may negatively impact the company?
