Such a proof shows, using the rule of inferences that we just learned, that if p is true, then q must be true.

... A population constitutes the collection of all conceivable results of a random process, while a sample is a sub-set of a population. Typically, it is very difficult or impractical to evaluate the entire population for a given parameter. Therefore, we select one or more samples out of the population ...

Part VIII - Tests of Significance - Chapters 26, 28, and 29

... Significance Level: The significance level, α, is a fixed constant which denotes the critical P-value which we regard to be decisive. This amounts to announcing in advance how much evidence against H0 we will require to reject H0 . The most frequently used values of α are 0.1, 0.05 or 0.01. Rules of ...

Rules of inference

... Arguments A formal proof of a conclusion C, given premises p1, p2,…,pn consists of a sequence of steps, each of which applies some inference rule to premises or to previously-proven statements (as hypotheses) to yield a new true statement (the conclusion). A proof demonstrates that if the premis ...

... This tells us that there is a 8.9% chance of observing the data that we see when the null is true. Since 8.9% is relatively large, we say that the data could have been sampled when the null is true. The null hypothesis is plausible and there is no evidence to reject the null (we cannot prove the alt ...
