A numeric value is then chosen for the hypothesis pair and this value is then compared between the mean of two populations. A pair of hypotheses designed to test differences, will use the symbol D 0 to refer to the hypothesized difference as stated in the null and alternative hypotheses. The alternative hypothesis usually states that there is a difference between the two data sets. Consequently, the null hypothesis says that the two data sets are equal. This is the same form used for other hypothesis tests. The following is the hypothesis pair for a test of difference: H 0 : x- bar 1 x -bar 2 = 0 H A : x-
