A canidatate for governor of a certain state claims to be favored by at least half of the voters. If a hypothesis test is performed, how should you interpret a decision that rejects the null hypothesis?
A. There is not sufficient evidence to reject the claim > or = 0.5
B. There is sufficient evidence to reject the claim > or = 0.5
C. There is not sufficient evidence to support the claim > or = 0.5
D. There is sufficinet evidence to support the claim > or = 0.5

Do you have the carats (>) facing in the right direction?
> = is greater than, < = is less than
To reject the null hypothesis, you would want sufficient evidence that P ≤ .05. 
I love reading these articles because they're short but inofmartvie.
