Statement of Hypotheses Statistical Hypothesis: On the parameters in a population NOT on the statistics of the sample data Example (ex 1 from 8.1): State whether each of the following assertion is a legitimate statistical hypothesis and why? A) H: σ >100 B) H: C) H: D)H: s 0.50 E) H: σ 1/ σ 2 < 1 45 X 2.0 
