# Find a Critical Value in Any Tail: Easy Steps

Main > Critical Values & Hypothesis Testing > Find a critical value Critical values are used in hypothesis testing. The alpha level is the maximum probability where you reject the null hypothesis if the null hypothesis is true. The technique…

# How to Figure out a Normally Distributed Probability Question Using the TI-89

Topic Index > TI 89 The standard normal distribution, sometimes called a “bell curve,” allows you to take normally distributed data (data that looks like the bell curve), and draw conclusions. It saves a lot of work, and a lot…

# How to Find a Critical Value on a Ti-89 Titanium (Left-Tailed test)

Topic Index > TI 89 Finding critical values and reading a z-table are an essential part of statistics. Critical values are used in hypothesis testing, and can help you use the standard normal distribution graph to make predictions about data.…

# Support or Reject Null Hypothesis in Easy Steps

Main > Critical Values & Hypothesis Testing When to reject the null hypothesis Basically, you reject the null hypothesis when your test value is lower than your alpha level. There are four main ways you’ll compute test values and either…
