# Thread: Hypothesis Test

1. ## Hypothesis Test

Hello,
I have the following problem and I have no idea how to answer.
Suppose that you are performing a one-tailed hypothesis test. " Assuming that everything else remains constant, a decrease in the test's level of significance (α) leads to a higher probability of rejecting the null hypothesis" Is this statement true or false? Explain your choice?
Thanks in advance!

Do you understand what a p-value is? Do you know the relationship between $\alpha$ and the p-value?

3. ## Thank you!

I found the answer to this problem, after I studied the relationship between and the p-value.

Thank you for your effort!
