Fail to reject the claim that the percentage of children who suffer from the disorder is equal to 6% when that percentage is actually different from 6%. |

Answer #1

Hello

The correct answer is **OPTION A.**

Type I error, also known as False Positive Error, occurs when null hypothesis is actually true, but is rejected during testing.

Here, null hypothesis will be that 6% children suffer from disorder.

Hence, rejecting the claim that the person suffering from disorder is 6% when its infact 6% is type I error.

I hope this solves your doubt.

Do give a thumbs up if you find this helpful.

indicated claim. A shoe store claims that at least 80% of its new
customers will return to buy their next pair of shoes.
Describe the type I error. Choose the correct answer below:
a) A type I error will occur when the actual proportion of new
customers who return to buy their next pair of shoes is no more
than 0.80 but you reject H0: p≤0.80.
b)...

true.
C) The probability of Type I error is equal to the significance
level.
D) Neither Type I error nor Type II error can be controlled by
the experimenter.

For this discussion board, come up with an example of a
hypothesis test that could be conducted. State the null and
alternative hpothesis. Then state what it would mean to have a type
I vs. a type II error in the given situation. Explain which you

using "the boy who cried wolf":
Null hypothesis: Wolf is not present
Alternative hypothesis: Wolf is present
Type I error: The boy cries...
