Consider the following hypothesis test. H 0 : μ ≥ 10 H a : μ < 10 The sample size is 120 and the population standard deviation is 5. Use α = .05. If the actual population mean is 9, the probability of a Type II error is .2912. Suppose the researcher wants to reduce the probability of a Type II error to .10 when the actual population mean is 9. What sample size is recommended?
