    (less than, equal to, not equal to, less than or equal to, greater than or greater than or equal to) 49 minutes, but you (REJECT or FAIL) the null hypothesis (Ho u<49 or Ho u>49 or Ho u<_49 or Ho u>_49).

    A Type II error will occur if the actual mean of the length of time to play a game is
    "pick one to insert in sentence"
    (less than, equal to, not equal to, less than or equal to, greater than or greater than or equal to) 49 minutes, but you (FAILED TO REJECT or REJECT) the null hypothesis (Ho u<49 or Ho u>49 or Ho u<_49 or Ho u>_49)

    After you pick up the items, the sentence is

    A Type I error will occur if the actual mean of the length of time to play a game is greater than or equal to 49 minutes, but you REJECT the null hypothesis Ho u>_49.

    A Type II error will occur if the actual mean of the length of time to play a game is
    "pick one to insert in sentence"
