Unformatted text preview: MGT 2250 — Lesson 29 _, Determining Sample Size For Specified Type I & Type II errors ' April 13, 2011 If alpha and beta are specified, the sample size “n” can be determined to ensure that neither of them will be exceeded. Note: The z-scores for alphas and betas of the same value are the same. For example: z-alpha for alpha = 0.05 is 1.645, and the z—beta for beta = 0.05 is also 1.645. Note also that alpha and beta can also be eXpressed as the percent probability of making a Type I or type II error respectively. We'will now work through some examples. _ 1 a) A quality control (QC) manager must decide whether to accept a shipment of batteries from a supplier or return it due to unacceptable quality. The quality requirements for these batteries demand that they have a useful life of at least 120' hours. To test the quality of the shipment, a sample of batteries will be selected at random and tested. If the sample indicates a mean useful life of this shipment is significantly less than 120 hours, the shipment will be rejected. (Note: The population standard deviation (sigma) is known to be 12 hours.) What size “n” will be required to hold the probability of making a type I error to 5% and also a Type II error to 5% if the actual life of this population of batteries is 115 hours?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
