    Type 1 error and Type 2 Error

    What happens to the type I and type II errors as the sample size becomes larger and larger?

    Do you know the definition of a Type I error and a Type II error?

    Re:

    type I errors occur when a false occurs, type II errors occur when a false negative occurs. Right?

    Pr(Type I error) = Pr(reject H0 | H0 is true).

    Pr(Type II error) = Pr(accept H0 | H1 is true).

    Think about what happens to these two probabilities as n_{\text{sample}} \rightarrow n_{\text{population}}.
