My F is greater than F critical, while P-Value is 0.99 greater than alpha (0.05) which one should I consider the P value or F statistic, rejecting the Ho:

I am confused.


Edit: $$ \begin{array}{ccc} \textrm{F statistic} & \textrm{P-value} & \textrm{F crit} \\ 6.15E{-}7 & 0.999378168 & 4.084745733 \end{array} $$

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Stats.SE. Can you please edit your post and add the F values, the degrees of freedom and the P-value, so that we can understand better the background? $\endgroup$ – Ertxiem Apr 26 at 10:48

I think you missed the scientific notation. Note that: $$ 6.15E{-}07\; =\; 6.15\! \times\! 10^{-07}\; =\; 0{\Large .}000\ 000\ 615\; <\; 4.084745733 $$ So you should not reject $H_0$.
