    Calculating the Probability of a type II error, Need help please.

    Hello, I am new on this forum, and I really need some help please. I've been stuck on this math problem for a few days now.

    Here is the problem.

    The student interviewed a sample of adults in the cities where apple picking is most common. This sample included 803 adults who reported going apple picking more than once. Yet 304 respondents said they never went apple picking.

    Is this strong evidence at the 1 percent level of significance that more than 1/3 of this population never went apple picking?

    Find the probability of a type II error if it was felt the true proportion of this population who never went apple picking were 36 percent.


    Thanks! I really appreciate it if someone would help me. I tried doing this problem, but I don't know what I did wrong.
    I need a structural outline, to see what I did wrong. Thanks.
