## What is an example of a null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis?

State Null and Alternative Hypotheses Null Hypothesis: On the average, the dosage sold under this brand is 50 mg (population mean dosage = 50 mg). Alternative Hypothesis: On the average, the dosage sold under this brand is not 50 mg (population mean dosage ≠ 50 mg).

**What is the null and alternative hypothesis for this problem?**

The null hypothesis is often an initial claim that is based on previous analyses or specialized knowledge. The alternative hypothesis states that a population parameter is smaller, greater, or different than the hypothesized value in the null hypothesis.

### What is the difference between null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis?

A null hypothesis is a statement, in which there is no relationship between two variables. An alternative hypothesis is statement in which there is some statistical significance between two measured phenomenon.

**What is the alternative hypothesis of the problem?**

The alternate hypothesis is just an alternative to the null. For example, if your null is “I’m going to win up to $1,000” then your alternate is “I’m going to win $1,000 or more.” Basically, you’re looking at whether there’s enough change (with the alternate hypothesis) to be able to reject the null hypothesis.

#### What is a good example of a null hypothesis?

“Hyperactivity is unrelated to eating sugar” is an example of a null hypothesis. If the hypothesis is tested and found to be false, using statistics, then a connection between hyperactivity and sugar ingestion may be indicated.

**What is hypothesis and null hypothesis?**

A hypothesis, in general, is an assumption that is yet to be proved with sufficient pieces of evidence. A null hypothesis thus is the hypothesis a researcher is trying to disprove. A null hypothesis is a hypothesis capable of being objectively verified, tested, and even rejected.

## What is null and research hypothesis?

Scientists begin their research with a hypothesis that a relationship of some kind exists between variables. The null hypothesis is the opposite stating that no such relationship exists. Null hypothesis may seem unexciting, but it is a very important aspect of research.

**What is alternative hypothesis in research?**

An alternative hypothesis is one in which a difference (or an effect) between two or more variables is anticipated by the researchers; that is, the observed pattern of the data is not due to a chance occurrence.

### What is a alternative hypothesis in an experiment?

An alternative hypothesis is one that states there is a statistically significant relationship between two variables. It is usually the hypothesis a researcher or experimenter is trying to prove or has already proven.

**What is the purpose of the alternative hypothesis?**

The alternative hypothesis always takes the opposite stance of a null hypothesis. If the null hypothesis estimates something to be true, then the alternative hypothesis estimates it to be false. The alternative hypothesis is usually the statement that you are testing when attempting to disprove the null hypothesis.
