That makes sense!

Had the same reasoning

jkan
I get that it's not significant, but why is it 0.05<p<1 and not p>1.0

jkan
nvm, it's can't be greater than 1 because then it would have a negative% confidence interval which cannot happen (Think if p>0.05 means at least 95% within confidence interval)

charcot_bouchard
p=0.05 means theres 5% chance null hypothesis is true. p=1 means theres 100% chance null hypothesis is true. >1 means >100% chance which isnt possible.

wowo
p is a probability, so can't be greater than 1

-1

The question is basically setting up a situation similar to that of a competitive inhibitor. They say that higher concentrations of pyridoxal phosphate increases the activity of the enzyme to normal levels. Similarly, when you have a competitive inhibitor and increase the concentration of substrate, the enzyme can achieve the same Vmax as if without the inhibitor.

I’m not sure about this one but the way I thought about it was that since the confidence interval included 1, it was

not significant. And thus p value must be above`0.05`
