## Classical vs.

P- Value: a Hypothesis Test

## To demonstrate the difference between the classical test of significance and a test using the

P- value, we'll examine a scenario involving an experimental drug which claims to lower the heart rate to 35 beats per minute. A test involving 45 randomly sampled patients yields a mean of 33.6 beats per minute.

We have found very strong evidence that the drug actually lowers the heart rate below 35 beats per minute. What would a test using P- value yield?
