I'm new to this area and I'm a little confused with the wordings (although I've done a few calculations including T-Score tests...)
I just need to understand if the wording being used is correct.
Consider this: There are only a few lecturers who actually deliver practical knowledge to their students.
My question: Is it correct to state that the following are null hypotheses?
- There are not many lecturers who deliver practical knowledge to their students.
- The are only a few lecturers who deliver practical knowledge to their students.
To me, both convey the same meaning. But someone told me that the second statement is incorrect and that I must always include 'not' when forming a statement for null hypotheses.
Please advise. Thanks!
