Next, you’ll need to state the null hypothesis (See: ). That’s what will happen if the researcher is wrong. In the above example, if the researcher is wrong then the recovery time is less than or equal to 8.2 weeks. In math, that’s:
H0 μ ≤ 8.2

State the null hypothesis. In this case, the null hypothesis is that the population mean is 18.9, so we write:
H0: μ = 18.9
