    Hypothesis Testing

    Can someone help me with this?It seems so simple yet I can't seem to understand the brief one page introduction to hypothesis testing given by my textbook.

    You are the pilot of a jumbo jet. You smell smoke in the cockpit. The nearest airport is less than 5 minutes away. Should you land the plane immediately?

    I wrote down:
    H0:u = 5
    H1:u < 5

    Thanks for any help..

    hypothesis tests

    next you have to write down the distribution of X, which is written (X~B) X being the number of your sample, and B being the probability.
    After that you need to put the values into the formula :]
