## How do you know when to fail to reject the null hypothesis?

After you perform a **hypothesis** test, there are only two possible outcomes. When your p-value is less than or equal to your significance level, you **reject the null hypothesis**. When your p-value is greater than your significance level, you **fail to reject the null hypothesis**.

## How do you know when to reject or fail to reject?

Suppose that you do a hypothesis test. Remember that the decision to **reject** the null hypothesis (H _{}) or **fail to reject** it can be based on the p-value and your chosen significance level (also called α). If the p-value is less than or equal to α, you **reject** H _{}; if it is greater than α, you **fail to reject** H _{}.

## Do you reject or fail to reject H0 at the 0.05 level of significance?

**We reject** the **null hypothesis** when the p-value is less than α. But 0.07 > **0.05** so **we fail to reject H0**. For example if the p-value = 0.08, then **we would fail to reject H0** at the **significance level** of α=**0.05** since 0.08 > **0.05**, but **we would reject H0** at the **significance level** of α = 0.10 since 0.08 < 0.10.

## What is the opposite of rejecting the null hypothesis?

The alternative **hypothesis** states the **opposite** and is usually the **hypothesis** you are trying to prove (e.g., the two different teaching methods did result in different exam performances).

## Do you reject null hypothesis p value?

If the **p**–**value** is less than 0.05, **we reject** the **null hypothesis** that there’s no difference between the means and conclude that a significant difference does exist. If the **p**–**value** is larger than 0.05, **we** cannot conclude that a significant difference exists.

## What does reject the null hypothesis mean?

If there is less than a 5% chance of a result as extreme as the sample result if the **null hypothesis** were true, then the **null hypothesis** is **rejected**. When this happens, the result is said to be statistically significant.

## How do you reject the null hypothesis and not reject?

If the P-value is less than (or equal to), **reject** the **null hypothesis** in favor of the alternative **hypothesis**. If the P-value is greater than, do **not reject** the **null hypothesis**.

## At what point is it conventional to not reject the null hypothesis?

**The convention** in most biological research is to use a significance level of 0.05. This means that if the P value is less than 0.05, you reject the null hypothesis; if P is greater than or equal to 0.05, you don’t reject the null hypothesis.

## What does p value 0.05 mean?

**P** > **0.05 is the** probability that the null hypothesis is true. A statistically significant test result (**P** ≤ **0.05**) **means** that the test hypothesis is false or should be rejected. A P **value** greater than **0.05 means** that no effect was observed.

## What is the name for the threshold p value that determines when the null hypothesis is rejected?

alpha level. the **threshold P**–**value that determines** when we **reject** a **null hypothesis**. If we observe a statistic whose **P**–**value** based on the **null hypothesis** is less than α, we **reject** that **null hypothesis**.

## Why do we reject the null hypothesis when the p-value is small?

A **p**–**value** less than 0.05 (typically ≤ 0.05) is statistically significant. It indicates strong evidence against the **null hypothesis**, as there is less than a 5% probability the **null** is correct (and the results **are** random). Therefore, **we reject the null hypothesis**, and accept the alternative **hypothesis**.

## When the P-value is used for hypothesis testing the null hypothesis is rejected if?

In consequence, by knowing the **p**–**value** any desired level of significance may be assessed. For example, **if** the **p**–**value** of a **hypothesis test** is 0.01, the **null hypothesis** can be **rejected** at any significance level larger than or equal to 0.01. It is not **rejected** at any significance level smaller than 0.01.

## How do you find the null hypothesis?

H_{}: The **null hypothesis**: It is a statement of no difference between sample means or proportions or no difference between a sample mean or proportion and a population mean or proportion. In other words, the difference equals 0.
