Suppose a researcher is testing the hypothesis Upper H 0​: pequals0.4 versus Upper H 1​: pgreater than0.4 and she finds the​ P-value to be 0.29. Explain what this means. Would she reject the null​ hypothesis? Why?

Choose the correct explanation below.

A.

If the​ P-value for a particular test statistic is 0.29​, she expects results no more extreme than the test statistic in exactly 29 of 100 samples if the null hypothesis is true.

B.

If the​ P-value for a particular test statistic is 0.29​, she expects results at least as extreme as the test statistic in about 29 of 100 samples if the null hypothesis is true.

C.

If the​ P-value for a particular test statistic is 0.29​, she expects results no more extreme than the test statistic in about 29 of 100 samples if the null hypothesis is true.

D.

If the​ P-value for a particular test statistic is 0.29​, she expects results at least as extreme as the test statistic in exactly 29 of 100 samples if the null hypothesis is true.

Since the P-value = 0.29 is > 0.10, fail to reject the null hypothesis is the decision.... View the full answer
