# Probability and Data

### This is for our unit on probability and data analysis

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

Possible results of a probability event. | Outcomes |

One outcome or a collection of outcomes. | Simple Event |

The ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the number of possible outcomes. | Probability |

The set of all possible outcomes. | Sample Space |

What should occur in a probability experiment. | Theoretical Probability |

What actually occurs in a probability experiment. | Experimental Probability |

A diagram used to show the total number of possible outcomes. | Tree Diagram |

If two independent events occur in succession, their individual total number of outcomes can be multiplied to give their combined total number of outcomes. | Fundamental Counting Principle |

An arrangement or listing in which order is important. | Permutation |

The expression n factorial (n!) is the product of all counting numbers beginning with n and counting backwards to 1. | Factorial |

An arrangement or listing in which order is not important. | Combination |

The sum of the data divided by the number of items in the data set, also called the average. | Mean |

In a set of data, the middle number of the ordered data, or the mean of the two middle numbers. | Median |

The number or numbers that occur most often in a set of data. | Mode |

The smallest value in a set of data. | Minimum |

The largest value in a set of data. | Maximum |

The difference between the minimum and maximum in a set of data. | Range |

A diagram that divides a set of data into four parts using the median and quartiles. A box is drawn around the quartile values and whiskers extend from the quartiles to the minimum and maximum data points. | Box and Whisker Plot |

The median of the lower half of a set of data. | Lower Quartile |

The median of the upper half of a set of data. | Upper Quartile |

Data that are more than 1.5 times the interquartile range from the quartiles. | Outliers |

Indicates the number of values in each interval in a histogram. | Frequency |

Uses bars to display numerical data that have been organized into equal intervals. | Histogram |
