Expert Answer

Step 1

Hypothesis testing:

        

Hypothesis testing was introduced by R.A. Fisher (Ronald Fisher).

 

It is a statistical method that is used to make a decision in comparison of two datasets. Basically it is an assumption that we make about the population parameter.

Step 2

Null hypothesis:

         It defines that there is no significant difference between the two population means. In this case, the researcher is trying to disprove it.

 

Alternative hypothesis:

         It defines that there is a significant difference between the two population means. In this case, the researcher is trying to prove it.

Step 3

Level of significance:

        

Based on significance level, either we accept or reject the null hypothesis.

 

If the p-value is less than the level of significance, we can reject the null hypothesis and we say that there is a significant difference between two means. In this case, the level of significance is setting a standard quality of our test.
