The word “five” is missing from the third sentence of the fifth paragraph in the online answers to this Endgames article by Philip Sedgwick (BMJ 2014;349:g5310, doi:10.1136/bmj.g5310). The sentence should have read: “For example, the probability of a significant result when there are two, three, four, and five hypothesis tests is 0.098, 0.143, 0.186, and 0.226, respectively.”
