18.4. The type II error rate β is 1 - (1600) = P 1600 { R < r } . This is the distribution function of a hypergeometric random variable and thus these probabilities can be computed using the phyper command For varying significance, we have the R commands: > t<-200;N<-1600 > k<-400 > alpha<-c(0.05,0.02,0.01) > ralpha<-c(49,51,53) > beta<-1-phyper(ralpha-1,t,N-t,k) > data.frame(alpha,beta) alpha beta 1 0.05 0.5993010 2 0.02 0.4609237 3 0.01 0.3281095 Notice that the type II error probability is high for = 0 . 05 and increases as decreases. For varying recapture size, we continue with the R commands: 287

The i -th observation satisfies P { X i x } = Z x 0 1 d ˜ x = x Now, X ( n ) x occurs precisely when all of the n -independent observations X i satisfy X i x . Because these random variables are independent, F X ( n ) ( x ) = P { X ( n ) x } = P { X 1 x, X 1 x, . . . , X n x } = P { X 1 x } P { X 1 x } , · · · P { X n x } = x ⌘ ⇣ x · · · x = x n 18.10.

    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.
