Question | Answer |
---|---|

P(E) | # of ways E can occur ______________________ total possible outcomes |

Sample Space | collection of all possible outcomes |

Event | a collection of outcomes |

outcome | any ONE thing that can happen |

in a regular 52 card deck what is the probability of getting an ace? | 4 ___ 52 |

Empirical Probability | Counting observation, changes by observation # of times E occurred/ total # of observations |

Contingency table | make a grid to figure out the probabilities |

The Law of Large Numbers (difference gets smaller w/ more observations) | as you increase the number of observations the probability increases. P(|Pemp(E)-Pcl(E)|>S) -> 0 |

Make a list | STAT ENTER |

_ X | Sample Mean |

SX | sample standard deviation |

OX | Population Standard Deviation |

n | Sample Size |

Med | Median (50% mark) |

To compute 2 lists of descriptive stats | STAT > ENTER enter data in list > STAT > CALC > > ENTER > 2ND > 1,2 (etc - use comma) |

Permutation = NPR | the number of ways to arrange r objects from a larger set of n objects. (one at a time) in a 52 card deck, how many ways to arrange? |

Combination = NCR | What is the probability of getting X from A any order? |

Combination - What is the probability of getting a 5 card hand, all spades. | 13 spades 13 c 5 cards ____________ 52 c 5 cards = 4.95 x 10-4 |

Permutation - In a 52 card deck how many 5 card hands are there? | 52 c 5 = (math PRB NCR enter 5 enter) |

n factorial | The number of way to arrange n objects n MATH PRB ! ENTER ENTER |

52 card deck arrange 7 cards on table, how many ways | 52 P 7 = 52 MATH PRB NPR ENTER (52 npr) 7 ENTER |

How many ways can you choose 5 people from a class of 50? | 50 p 5 50 MATH PRB NPR ENTER (50 NPR) 5 ENTER |

Complimentary Probability | Given E, its opposite E is its compliment P(E) + P(E!)=1 so, P(E) = 1-P(E!) |

Complimentary Prob - in a 52 card deck what is probability of getting one ace in 5 card hand? | opposite of getting one ace is no ace = 1 - 48 C 5 / 52 C 5 (48 cards = 52 - aces - 1 ace in your hand) |

Conditional probability | Given 2 events (E given F) "Given a 52 card deck, what is the probability getting 5 spades, given all cards are black." |

Given a 52 card deck, what is the probability getting 5 spades, given all cards are black | P (5 spades/ black) #ways to get 5 spades # ways black 5 card hands spades 13 C 5 / 26 (black cards) C 5 = .0195 |

Independence (2 events) | P(E given F) = P(E) Independent if proportion are the same dependent of proportions are not the same. |

Are aces independent of hearts? | P (ace/hearts) vs P(aces/cards) ace in hearts/# hearts = # aces /total # cards 1/13 = 4/52 (1/13) independent |

Binomial Distribution (Bernouli) Roulette = Bernouli Poker blackjack = not bernouli | Finite trials, 2 events (success vs fail), P(success) same from trial to trial, trials are independent |

What is the probability of sick at c- restaurant is 15%, out of 5 visits that you'll get sick twice? | Note exact # (Binom pdf) 2nd VERS BINOMPDF (5,.15, 2) visits possible, %, sick actual |

What is the probability of sick at c- restaurant is 15%, out of 5 visits that you'll get sick AT LEAST twice? | Note range (Binom cdf) 1 - BINOMCDF (5, .15, 2) opposite of 2 or more - visits poss, %, top range - 1 |
