What is Problem Statements

Can someone help me clarify what are the Problem Statements and Hypothesis Statements in UX Research? Do you need to do a single statement per project or multiple? What are the differences from User Stories?

Hey Pasha, this post about getting customers to stack rank problem statements became on of the most viral startup posts of all time on Reddit last week. I feel like it provides a good answer to your various questions: reddit (dot) com /r/startups/comments/mmwphz/how_stripe_validates_ideas_for_new_products/

Welcome to the community @Pasha_Starovoyt!

In UX Research the problem statement is what is the problem you are researching. Why are you doing this research? The hypotheses are what you want to prove during your research. You would usually have one problem statement and a few hypotheses.

Hope that helps!
