Heres the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When asked to explain the meaning of "statistically significant at the 0.05 level," a student says, "This means there is only probability 0.05 that the null hypothesis is true." Is this an essentially correct explanation of statistical significance? Explain.

Help please. Appreciated.
