Question

**Guilty or Innocent?** In the U.S. court system, a defendant is assumed innocent until proven guilty. Suppose that you regard a court trial as a hypothesis test with null and alternative hypotheses

H0: Defendant is innocent

Ha: Defendant is guilty.

a. Explain the meaning of a Type I error.

b. Explain the meaning of a Type II error.

c. If you were the defendant, would you want a to be large or small? Explain your answer.

If you were the prosecuting attorney, would you want ß to be large or small? Explain your answer.

e. What are the consequences to the court system if you make a = 0? ß = 0?
