The screening process for detecting a rare disease is not perfect. Researchers have developed a blood test that is considered fairly reliable. It gives a positive reaction in 98% of the people who have that disease. However, it erroneously gives a positive reaction in 3% of the people who do not have the disease. Answer the following questions using the null hypothesis as "the individual does not have the disease."

a. What is the probability of Type I error? (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

b. What is the probability of Type II error? (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

Consider the following hypotheses:

HA: μ ≠ 1,800

The population is normally distributed with a population standard deviation of 440. Compute the value of the test statistic and the resulting p-value for each of the following sample results. For each sample, determine if you can "reject/do not reject" the null hypothesis at the 10% significance level. Use Table 1.(Negative values should be indicated by a minus sign. Round intermediate calculations to 4 decimal places. Round "test statistic" values to 2 decimal places and "p-value" to 4 decimal places.)

A local bottler in Hawaii wishes to ensure that an average of 16 ounces of passion fruit juice is used to fill each bottle. In order to analyze the accuracy of the bottling process, he takes a random sample of 48 bottles. The mean weight of the passion fruit juice in the sample is 15.80 ounces. Assume that the population standard deviation is 0.8 ounce. Use Table 1.

Use the critical value approach to test the bottler's concern at α = 0.05.

a. Select the null and the alternative hypotheses for the test.
