Testing a Hypothesis

  • Phillip I. Good

Abstract

In Chapter 1, we learned how to describe a sample and how to use the sample to describe and estimate the parameters of the population from which it was drawn. In this chapter, we learn how to frame hypotheses and alternatives about the population and to test them using the relabeling method. We learn the fundamentals of probability and apply them in practical situations. And we learn how to draw random, representative samples that can be used for testing and estimation.
