Example from Wikipedia:

```
The Wilcoxon Sign test was applied as statistical comparison of the average of two dependent samples above.
In this case then, the calculated P-value was 0.56 and hence greater than the significance (0.05 by default).
This implies that "H0: there is no difference between the
results in data1 and data2" must be accepted.
