the null hypothesis. The other two sets of hypotheses (Sets 2 and 3) are one-tailed tests, since an extreme value on only one side of the sampling distribution would cause a researcher to reject the null hypothesis.

This null hypothesis, H0 is tested against one of the following alternative hypotheses, depending on the question posed:

test. The T test is the most common statistical test used. It’s used to determine how one population is different from the other when calculating the mean value. For every statistical test there is a p value. The p value will allow the testing to determine if the null hypothesis is correct. The two...
