What is a hypothesis? Why is it important to identify the null and alternative hypotheses? Can you have one without the other? Explain, why or why not?

What are the steps espoused by the textbook for formal hypothesis testing? Explain why the sequence is important? What might happen if the hypothesis test is performed before the researcher has decided on the significance level?

Define (a) quality, (b) process, and (c) productivity. Why are they hard to define?  List six general attributes of quality.
