P = probability that the results would occur solely on the basis of chance (alpha error). This is the likelihood of rejecting the null hypothesis, when the null hypothesis is really true.
Check various research projects to get an idea of which level of significance is used. However, I would be on .05. (By the way, the decimal point does make a difference.)
