hypothesis is a claim about a parameter that is assumed true until
proven otherwise. If the null hypothesis is false, the data supports
the alternative hypothesis.
When making a
decision, there are two types of errors. A Type I error is when a
true null hypothesis is rejected. A Type II error is when a false
null hypothesis is not rejected.
A p-value is
the chance that we obtained what we observed or something more
extreme in the direction of the alternative hypothesis if the null
hypothesis is true.
