What does it say above number 1? Is there an opening paragraph or short statement?

Sorry to ask a lot of questions, but #2 references a "research question." I don't see one. All #1 asks is that you estimate something.

Hypothesis testing is about stating a situation, then collecting data to see if there is enough evidence to refute the hypothesis in favor of an alternative hypothesis.

An example- say you think that, on average, girls score higher than boys on a particular test. The "null" hyptohesis would be worded something like: Girls' and boys' average scores are equal on the test. The "alternative" would be worded like: Girls' average score is higher than boys' average score.

After collecting data on scores, you would then compute the averages for each gender. If the girls' average is "significantly" higher than the boys' average, then you would conclude that there is sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative. If the averages are pretty close, then you would fail to reject the null hypothesis...
