# How to interpret $F > F_{\rm crit}$, but $p > \alpha$

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

• 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? – Ertxiem Apr 26 at 10:48
• F P-value F crit 6.15E-07 0.999378168 4.084745733 – Moro Apr 26 at 10:52

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 $$H_0$$.
