Alternative Hypothesis (Ha)

Definition of Alternative Hypothesis (Ha):

The alternate hypothesis (Ha) is a statement that the means, variance, etc. of the samples being tested are not equal. In software program which present a p-value in lieu of F Test or T Test When the P-value is less than or equal to your agreed upon decision point (typically 0.05) you accept the Ha as being true and reject the Null Ho. (Ho always assumes that they are equal.)
