    as above. i dislike it very much when they ask... what is the p-value of the test? it still sounds like jargon to my ears.

    secondly, hypo testing. i understand the stuff in the grey boxes (i.e. obligate formulae to test the hypo) but its always probalby the later parts of the questions that i can't do.

    um how can i put it. if i have to draw the distributions i'll be stuck unless i have friendly s2 helpers at hand to get this resolved by wednesday.

    just please, UNLOAD your knowledge bank. spill if you must

    The p-value is the smallest significance-level at which the null hypothesis is rejected. If you reject the null at the 5% level but accept it at the 4.999...% level then the p-value is 0.05.

    The smaller the p-value, the less you believe the null hypothesis.
