Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses for the study described.
Q 3 A two-tailed test is conducted at the 5% significance level. What is the P-value required to reject the null hypothesis?
Each of the above questions have been answered in the attached solution. Here the approach and the rationale (wherever necessary) have been included.
