12-12-12 (background): Some Recipes for p-values, type 1 and 2 error probabilities, power, etc.

Some Recipes and Exercises With Tests, Type I and Type II errors, Size, Power, and Severity.

You can find a good Normal Distribution Chart at the following site:

Naturally, now I’m asked for answers to the exercises: Here they are.  Answer Sheet
