Unformatted text preview: p-value = 0.051. f. t = (Mean − null value)/(SE Mean) = (193.13 − 200)/4.07 = − 1.688 rounded to − 1.69. g. Because the p-value is .051 > .05, do not reject the null hypothesis. There is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean cholesterol level for the population of people like the control patients is less than 200. Note: Some researchers would round off the p-value to two digits, and report it as .05. As a reader, you must use your own judgment about whether .051 is small enough to reject the null hypothesis. 13.15 a.

No, to find the proper p-value we must know whether the alternative hypothesis is one-sided or two-sided....
