    Statistics Help...

    Set up the null and alternative hypothesis for the following problem.
    A survey reported the planning habits of men and women. The question asked, "how do you primarily keep track of meetings, appointments and deadlines?" 56% of men and 46% of women answered, "in my head."
    Let p1 = proportion of men who prefer keeping track of appointments in their heads and p2 = proportion of women who prefer keeping track of appointments in their heads.

    null
    alternative

    Do you know what these words mean? What are the definitions of "null hypothesis" and "alternate hypothesis"? The numerical information given here is irrelevant to the answer.
