Example: Differences between means

Given: two data sets measuring a condition

eg height difference of males and females     time to select an item from different menu styles ...

Question:

is the difference between the means of the data statistically significant?

Null hypothesis:

there is no difference between the two means

statistical analysis can only reject the hypothesis at a certain level of confidence

we never actually prove the hypothesis true
