The two approaches to significance testing are p-value approach and critical value approach.
In p-value approach, the data gives strong evidence to reject the null hypothesis when it is too small (<0.01). The conclusion of the p-value approach is based on the comparison between p-value of the test and the significance level, α.
Decision:
If p-value is less than or equal to the significance level, the null hypothesis is rejected.
In critical value approach, if the test statistic lies in the critical region, then the null hypothesis is rejected. The conclusion of the critical value approach is based on the comparison between test statistic of the test and the critical value at α of the test .
Decision:
If critical value is greater than the test statistic, the null hypothesis is rejected.

In each of Exercises, we have provided a sample mean, sample size, and population standard deviation. In each case, use the one-mean z-test to perform the required hypothesis test at the 5% significance level.

If we look at the solutions for the first problem here and the first problem here, we see both problems are one-tailed tests for the upper-tail. However, in the first paper the rejection region is Z > 1.65, but in the second paper the rejection region is Z > 1.96.
How can this be if both problems have a significance level of 0.05 and both are upper-tailed tests? Shouldn't they both have a rejection region of Z > 1.65? Is the second paper incorrect?

I have the following 2 samples
data 1 : 59.09 59.17 59.27 59.13 59.10 59.14 59.54 59.90
data 2: 59.06 59.40 59.00 59.12 59.01 59.25 59.23 59.564
And I need to check whether there is differentiation regarding the mean and the variance between the 2 data samples at significance level a=0.05
I think that the first thing I need to do is to check whether the samples come from a normal distribution in order to infer whether i should proceed using parametric or non marametric tests...
However using lillietest in matlab returned that both samples do not follow the normal distribution...
Any ideas on how should I proceed with checking the differentiation tests ? Should I perform ttest ? Or should I proceed by using something like Wilcoxon ? (p.s please confirm that that both data samples do not follow normal distribution...)

Why is standard deviation calculated differently for finding Z scores and confidence intervals?
Suppose that as a personnel director, you want to test the perception of fairness of two methods of performance evaluation. 63 of 78 employees rated Method 1 as fair. 49 of 82 rated Method 2 as fair. A 99% confidence interval for p 1 p 2 (where p 1 = 63/78 and p 2 = 49/82) is as follows:
p 1 p 2 ± 2.58 p 1 ( 1 p 1 ) n 1 + p 2 ( 1 p 2 ) n 2
0.029 p 1 p 2 0.391
At the 0.01 level of significance the Z score is
Z = p ( 1 p ) n 1 + p ( 1 p ) n 2
(where ( x 1 + x 2 ) / ( n 1 + n 2 ) = 0.70 but sometimes a different formula p = ( p 1 + p 2 ) / 2 is also used)
Z = 2.90
Both tests indicate that there is evidence of a difference.
But you could also find the Z score using the standard deviation formula in the first method to be 2.993. Why are the Z scores different? Where do the formulas for finding the standard deviation come from?
