Demonstrates the basics of hypothesis testing using the P-value method: find the test statistic which in turn gives us the P-value, then compare the P-value to the level of significance (alpha) to determine whether or not the Null Hypothesis is rejected or not.
PLEASE READ!! I did not make a mistake by showing .0045 as the area (probability) for 2.61. Look carefully at my picture. I have shaded to the **RIGHT** of 2.61, not to the left. If you look up 2.61 on your table and see .9955 your table is assuming you want the area shaded to the LEFT of 2.61. Again, I shaded to the RIGHT of 2.61. I hope that makes sense!
