This is the formula: Pr(reject H0 | H0 true).
The best way is to read examples like this one: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...e-i-error.html
I'm sure a search of these forums will uncover other examples.
Hi!
I'm an AP stats student and I'm fortunate enough to have an EXTREMELY incompetent teacher (a bit of sarcasm there) so I was wondering if anyone could properly explain how to find the probability of getting a Type 1 Error... this seems to be an area that few text books explain thoroughly... although mine explains how to find a Type 2 quite thoroughly. Go figure.
If anyone even has time to write only the formula that would be more than enough!!
Thanks!!

Umm... ok I think I need the in-depth explanation because unfortunately that formula as well as the other examples I've found aren't making sense to me... perhaps it would be easier to explain with a problem?:
