The following is a solution to a practice question I have just attempted. pvalue = 0.0237. Method A performs a onetailed test. The result is significant at the 1% but not the 5% level. Some evidence that the yoga group have a lower mean age.  Is it just me, or are the significance levels mixed up? For example I would of thought the following is correct: 0.0237 < 0.05, therefore significant at 5% 0.0237 > 0.01, therefore NOT significant at 1%
