# 5% and 1% significance

Hi, I am a little confuse about the p-value and the significance level.

5% significance: 0.015 < 0.05 => We reject the null hypothesis

1% significance: 0.015 > 0.01 => We accept the null hypothesis

Why the conclusion we interpret that there is enough statistical evidence mean difference is NOT 4%? Isn't that at 1% significance the mean difference is 4%? How can we interpret this?

If the p-value is less than the significance level, then we can conclude that "There is sufficient evidence to support the alternative hypothesis" and hence, reject the null hypothesis; Or else, we conclude that "There is insufficient evidence to support the alternative hypothesis" and in this case, do not reject the null hypothesis.

Hope this helps.
