If you are already certain that a null hypothesis is false, then:
Significance testing provides no useful information since all it does is reject a null hypothesis.
Significance testing is informative because you still need to know whether an effect is significant even if you know the null hypothesis is false.
When a difference is significant you can draw a confident conclusion about the direction of the effect.
You can still ask an expert for help

Null hypothesis of the test is the nullified statement about the population parameter. Whereas, the alternative hypothesis is the alternative statement of the null hypothesis. When the null hypothesis of the test is rejected, it means that the effect of the test is significant.
If already known that the null hypothesis is false, Significance testing is informative because you still need to know whether an effect is significant even if you know the null hypothesis is false.

A local pizza store knows the mean amount of time it takes them to deliver an order is 45 minutes arter the order is placed. The manager has a new system for processing delivery orders, and they want to test ifit changes the mean delivery time. They take a sample of delivery orders and find their mean delivery time is 48 minutes.
Let μ represent the mean delivery time under the new system.
What are appropriate hypotheses for their signifhcance test?
a)H0:μ= 45 minutes
Ha:μ 45 minutes
b)H0:μ =45 minutes
Ha:μ 48 minutes
c)H0:μ p= 48 minutes
Ha:μ 45 minutes
d)H0:μ = 48 minutes
Ha:μ 48 minutes

I have a problem.
I want to find if there is a statististical significant difference between two groups which I have put through a practical test.
The outcome was 1 or 0 (success/fail).
Group 1 was subject to extra training material before the "exam". Group 2 was not.
Each group had one attempt in three different scenarios: easy - medium - hard.
Lets take the medium scenario as example:
The number of participants in each group is 10
Group 1 scored: 7 successes, 3 failures --> success rate 0.70 Group 2 scored: 2 successes, 8 failures --> success rate 0.22
Now what I have done, is try to use the Z-test for two population proportions in an attempt to reject the null hypothesis, buuuuut, I think my sample size is to small for the z-test?
Im not sure what test to use at this point, can anyone give me a clue?
