Slide 5: Research HypothesisThe form for the hypothesis chosen was two-tailed hypothesis.

Null Hypothesis:Ã¢ÂÂ¢ (verbal form)Ho: No statistically significant difference exists in the mean wins between teams that have ERAs below the mean and teams that have ERAs above the mean.

Ã¢ÂÂ¢(Numeric form)Ho: ÃÂ¼ (ERA below mean) = ÃÂ¼ (ERA above mean)Alternate Hypothesis:Ã¢ÂÂ¢(verbal form)H1: A statistically significant difference exists in the mean wins between teams that have ERAs below the mean and teams that have ERAs above the mean.

Ã¢ÂÂ¢(Numeric form)H1: ÃÂ¼ (ERA below mean) Ã¢Â ÃÂ¼ (ERA above mean)Note: The outcome of the two-tailed hypotheses will be that Team A will either reject the null or fail to reject the null.
