    Null and Alternative Hypotheses and Type I and II Errors

    Share the null and alternative hypotheses for a decision that is relevant to your life. This can be a personal item or something at work. Be sure that it is mathematical in nature. Additionally, identify the Type I and Type II Errors that could occur with your decision‐making process. Be sure to quantify your hypotheses as much as possible and identify your variables. For example, suppose a newspaper article stated that the average weight of cats is 5 lbs. Suppose you think that the average weight of cats is more than 5 lbs. Then the hypotheses are:

    H0: μ < 5
    Ha: μ >5
    Here μ is the population average weight of cats. This would be an example of an Upper Tail test.
