    Hi all,
    We use P value to analyse our data throughout the measure phase.  If P>0.05 accept the data.  But what is the significance of this p value.  I know that it is related to 95% confidence interval,  but am not able to find a clear definition of this. 
    Please let me know if any of you can clear this to me with some good example.
     
    thanks a lot.

    a P value is the product of the software age versus the statistical calulation methods long withstanding such as F score or T score.
    Put simply the P value represents the probablitity the the results viewed are a matter of chance versus actual meaning. The higher the value the more opportunity chance is a factor.  0.05 is an arbitrary norm utilied. This means that we accept the fact that there is a 5% chance that the results are simply dumb luck and not really meaningful.
