(a) Explain what Type I error and Type II error that may occur in this study.

(b) What is the probability of committing a type II error if its battery actual last for 14 days.

(c) What sample size you will need if it is intended for a 90% probability of detecting that ‘the u is less than 15’ when it was actually u=14.

Type I errors result when you reject the null and it's true. Type II errors result when you accept the null and it's false. The probability of a Type II error is beta.

You may be able to find sample size using margin of error.

Formula is this:

Margin of error = (z-value)(sd/√n)
