# Homework Help: Statistics

Posted by Montoney on Friday, August 27, 2010 at 10:48pm.

What is the difference between the null and alternative hypotheses statements in one-tailed and two-tailed tests? How can manufacturing companies use the standard normal distribution to determine quality control of their products?

One-tailed tests only work in one direction, while two-tailed tests work in both directions.

One-tailed

Ho: A = B
H1: A < B or A > B (not both)

Two-tailed

Ho: A = B
H1: A ≠ B

I would think the companies would not want their products to deviate significantly from the standard in either direction.
