### TESTS OF SIGNIFICANCE

 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
The p-value of a hypothesis test is .0281. Is this result significant at the 5% significance level?
 A Yes, because .0281 > .05. B Yes, because .0281 < .05. C No, because .0281 < .05. D No, because .0281 > .05.
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The p-value of a hypothesis test is . 0281. Is this result significant at the 5% significance level? Yes, because .

Detailed explanation-2: -The level of significance is generally considered at 5% (0.05) level «f probability. (v) Tabulated value of t: Value of t is recorded from the Fisher and Yates table at the given degree of freedom and at 5% level of significance.

Detailed explanation-3: -eg the p-value = 0.01, it means if you reproduced the experiment (with the same conditions) 100 times, and assuming the null hypothesis is true, you would see the results only 1 time. OR in the case that the null hypothesis is true, there’s only a 1% chance of seeing the results.
