    The purpose of hypothesis testing is to aid the manager or researcher in reaching a (an) __________________ concerning a (an) _______________ by examining the data contained in a (an) _______________ from that ____________________.

    A hypothesis may be defined simply as __________________________________________.

    There are two statistical hypotheses. They are the _________________ hypothesis and the _________________ hypothesis.

    The statement of what the investigator is trying to conclude is usually placed in the _________________ hypothesis.

    If the null hypothesis is not rejected, we conclude that the alternative _________________.

    If the null hypothesis is not rejected, we conclude that the null hypothesis _________________.

    The probability of committing a Type I error is designated by the symbol ____________, which is also called the ___________________.

    Values of the test statistic that separate the acceptance region from the rejection are called _________________ values.

    The following is a general statement of a decision rule: If, when the null hypothesis is true, the probability of obtaining a value of the test statistic as_______________ as or more _____________ than that actually obtained is less than or equal to , the null hypothesis is________________.  Otherwise, the null hypothesis is ______________________ .

    The probability of obtaining a value of the test statistic as extreme as or more extreme than that actually obtained, given that the tested null hypothesis is true, is called ____________ for the ________________test.

    When one is testing H0: µ= µ0 on the basis of data from a sample of size n from a normally distributed population with a known variance of σ2, the test statistic is ____________________________________________________.
