Unit 5 DiscussionDiscussion Topic
Hypothesis testing typically begins with a theory, a claim, or an assertion about a particular parameter (mean or proportion) of a population.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is an independent agency of the U.S. federal government charged with preventing unfair or deceptive trade practices. It regulates advertising, marketing, and consumer credit practices, and also prevents antitrust agreements and other unfair practices.
The FTC publishes press releases regularly about health and fitness claims at https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/media-resources/truth-advertising/health-claims

Initial Response: Formulating the Hypothesis
First response: Review one of your classmates’ post. In the context of their hypothesis test, discuss what the Type I Error and Type II Error would mean using a Decision Table as your guide. What level of significance would you suggest based on what a Type I Error or Type II Error would mean?
Type I Error is defined as rejecting the null hypothesis when in fact it should be accepted. (i.e. “False Positive,” “False Alarm,” defendant found guilty when in fact innocent)
Type II Error is defined as accepting the null hypothesis when in fact it should be rejected. (i.e. “False Negative,” defendant found not guilty when in fact guilty)
Second response: Review another classmate’s post. Suppose you are the researcher of the hypothesis test and you conclude to either “reject the null hypothesis” or “not to reject the null hypothesis.” Write a statement on your conclusion to the public about this service/product.
