First and foremost, I am terrible in Stats so bear w/ me on this one. This is my question, if anyone has an idea on how to figure out this problem that would be great!! Here it is: Suppose you flip a coin 100 times and you want to test the hypothesis that the coin is fair, making sure there is less than a 5 percent chance of erroneously rejecting the fair coin hypothesis. How wide should the zone of acceptance be? How wide should the zone be if you flip the coin 5 times?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
