      The t-value is the difference between the group means divided by the variability of the groups

      If a t-value is large than its corresponding P value will also be large

    • D. 

      If P > 0.05 we must reject the alternative hypothesis and accept the null hypothesis – that there is no statistical significance between the two groups and the difference occurring in the data is simply due to chance
