Past records from a local hospital stated that the proportion of full-term babies born in the hospital who weigh less than seven pounds is 43%. Suppose that we have strong reason to believe the proportion is greater than 43%, and we wish to carry out a hypothesis test. State the null hypothesis H0 and the alternative hypothesis H1 that we would use for this test.
H0:
H1:

The shop floor manager in a dairy company believes that the milk packaging process unit for 1 liter packs is not working fine and needs calibration. If the Null Hypothesis is framed to be µ = 1 liter, what would be the alternate hypothesis?

If the P value is greater than the alpha value, then we reject the null hypothesis. T/F
If two variables are highly correlated, this must mean that one is causing the other to occur. T/F
If we fail to reject the null hypothesis, then we are proving the accuracy of the null hypothesis. T/F
