Question description

"You Can’t Prove the Null by Not Rejecting It"  Please respond to the following:

A common mistake many statistics students make is saying we "accept the null" or "prove the null" instead of "fail to reject the null". To help you better understand why it is correct to say "fail to reject the null", Go to: http://liesandstats.wordpress.com/2008/10/25/you-cant-prove-the-null-by-not-rejecting-it/. Read the article: “You Can’t Prove the Null by Not Rejecting It”. 
  • Explain why “failing to reject the null” is not the same as “accepting the null.”
  • Support the statement that your claim should be worded so that what you want tested will be in the alternative hypothesis.
