# Probability of type II error and the error of margin

1. Consider the following test of whether the coin is fair. Toss a coin three times, if the coin lands whether all heads or tails, reject the Ho: p=1/2. If P=4/5, What is the probability of type II error for this procedure?

2. A sample of 350 orders for takeout at a local pizzeria found out that the average cost of order was $22 with s=$14. Find the error of margin if we use 95% confidence interval for average cost per order.
