    Hello I have a question which is causing me much grief. I cannot seem to understand it. I am quite new to statistics and any help answering this question would be appreciated
    The P-value for a two sided test of the null hypothesis Ho: u = 10 is 0.06.
    Does the 95% confidence interval include the value 10? Why?
    Does the 90% confidence interval include the value 10? Why?
    Thanks

    The answers are yes and no, respectively.

    Part of the question was ‘why’.
    If the confidence level is 95%, you compare the p – value (0.06)Β to 0.05, the null hypothesis is: mu =10 at 95% , The p value is therefore greater than 0.05, we cannot reject the null hypothesis.
    At 90% CI, we compare the p -value to 0.1, the p -value is lower than 0.1, therefore we have to reject the null hypothesis at 90% and conclude that there is a significant difference.

    Joe honey.
    Your act has grown old.
    I wasn’t wrong, I just didn’t spoonfeed.
    Grow up.

    What about the “WHY”?
    Ignorant fool!

    I am actually surprised you knew the why.
    You don’t even know the history or background of the country you live in. What could get simpler than that?

    The country I was born in, the country I grew up in, the country I have never left,Β  my country, that great country!

    The idea of being proud of never having left your country seems pretty ignorant. It’s like having a library card and checking out the same book over and over.

    Go read this boy’s other posts. He has all the markings of one of those guys who has stand offs with federal agents if you know what I mean. Pretty scary BB – we should make him a change agent at BET.

    JoeBB,
    Which Appalachian valley would that be?

    The answers are both yes because if p value > 0.05, then the compared mean will be inside the confidence interval. Another way to validate your hypothesis is looking in the confidence interval, if the value is within the defined interval, accept the null (p>0.05).
