# Thread: [TI-83] - Type II Error Probability Calculation

1. ## [TI-83] - Type II Error Probability Calculation

I was wondering if anyone can help me out on writing or obtaining a program for the TI-83 to calculate type II error probabilities. I am fairly inexperienced with the calculator and would greatly appreciate any help.

If help can't be given, can someone please point me in the right direction? I already looked on education.ti.com and couldn't find what I was looking for there.

Thanks!

Josh

What tests do you want to the type II error for?

3. ## Re: [TI-83] - Type II Error Probability Calculation

oh right haha sorry

One sample z test for means should suffice

Would you be able to figure out a the probability of a Type II error by hand (well... with the aid of a calculator)? Do you know how to do it? Once you understand the process writing the program is just a matter of syntax. But if you don't understand the process then writing the program is the last thing you should worry about - understanding what is going on is much more vital and without that knowledge you can't write the program.

oh yeah haha i can figure it out by hand, i just never tried making a program on a ti-83 before. i think i've got it figured out now though. thanks for the replies!

Have you ever programmed in a different language before? Programming on my 84 was probably my first programming experience but in my opinion it's not a very good language.

programmed a bit in java. that's it.

So I finally got around to it and figured it all out, the programming was a lot easier than I though. Just a bare bones job, but it'll do.

Thanks for all the help!
