Can somebody please explain this to me? It would mean the world! Thanks so much brainiacs! (1) When β is .05, the probability of a Type I error is... (2) When β is .05, the probability of a Type II error is...

Do you know what is meant by Type I and Type II errors?

A Type II error is incorrectly declaring H0 when H1 was correct, i.e. a missed detection. The usual notation is that $Pr[\text{Type I error}]=\alpha$ $Pr[\text{correct detection}]=\beta \Rightarrow Pr[\text{Type II error}]=1\beta$ So we can't answer (1) based on the information given. In (2) $Pr[\text{Type II error}]=1\beta = 0.95$
