Determine the decision criterion for rejecting the null hypothesis in the given hypothesis test; i.e., describe the values of the test statistic that would result in rejection of the null hypothesis.

 Suppose you wish to test the claim that μd, the mean value of the differences d for a population of paired data, is greater than 0. Given a sample of n = 15 and a significance level of α = 0.01, what criterion would be used for rejecting the null hypothesis?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Alternative hypothesis. The alternative hypothesis, denoted by H1 or Ha, is the hypothesis that sample observations are influenced by some non-random cause. 

This is used here because of the nature of such data.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
