Expert Answer

Type I error (α):

The Type I error is committed, if the null hypothesis is rejected, when it might actually be true. The probability of Type I error, denoted by α, is the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis, given that it is true.

Type II error (β):

The Type II error is committed, if the null hypothesis is not rejected, even when it is actually be false. The probability of Type II error, denoted by β, is the probability ...
