Unformatted text preview: Type I error: Rejecting H 0 when it is true. Type II error: Failing to reject H when it is false. =P(type I error) = P(reject H when H is true) Pvalue is smallest level of significance that would lead to rejection of H . 1) Parameter of interest 2) Null Hypothesis 3) Alternative Hypothesis 4) Test statistic 5) Reject H0 if 6) Computations 7) Conclusions Inference on the mean of a population, variance known Random sample size n, normally distributed. Pvalue: for twosided. 1sided = 1(Z ) when > o , or (Z ) when < . Reject if z is > z /2 or z is < z /2 and fail to reject if z 2 <= z <= z /2 (twosided). } Critical For onesided, reject if z > z a ( > ), reject if z < z a ( < ). } regions! Probability of Type II Error for TwoSided Alternative Hypothesis on the Mean, Variance Known For Onesided: Sample Size for TwoSided Alternative Hypothesis on the Mean, Variance Known , where Z = and For Onesided: Confidence Interval on the Mean, Variance Known Sample Size for a Specified E on the Mean, Variance Known...
