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

The null hypothesis is what we are attempting to overturn by our hypothesis test.

The alternative hypothesis is what we are attempting to demonstrate in an indirect way by the use of our hypothesis test.

Examples

  • Null hypothesis: “x is equal to y.” Alternative hypothesis “x is not equal to y.” 
  • Null hypothesis: “x is at least y.” Alternative hypothesis “x is less than y.” 
  • Null hypothesis: “x is at most y.” Alternative hypothesis “x is greater than y.”

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