- 1.defined as the sum of the values divided by the number of observations for the entire population (N)
- 2.it is the sum of the squared deviations from the population mean, divided by N
- 3.The sample mean (x) is an estimate of the population mean and is the sum of values in the sample divided by n, the number of observations in the sample alone
- 4.The population variance is the is the sum of the squared deviations from the population mean divided by N, whereas the sample variance is the sum of the squared deviations from the sample mean

In describing data by use of a summary measure, it is important to select the measure of central tendency that most accurately represents the data. A key factor is to determine of the data are symmetrical or skewed. Data are most commonly represented by two summary measures – one to indicate central tendency and one to indicate variation. The most commonly used pair is the arithmetic mean and the standard deviation.

- B.The Addition Rule:
- The probability that event A or event B (or both) will occur equals the sum of the probabilities of each individual event minus the probability of both

- A.Rule 1: Number of Ways

then the events consisting of A and B can occur in n1 – n2 ways

- B.Rule 2: Permutations
- 1.In determining the number of ways in which you can arrange a group of objects, you must first know whether the order of arrangement plays a role.
- 2.A permutation is a selection of r objects from a group of n objects, taking the order of selection into account

Probability measures the likelihood that a particular event will or will not occur. In a long series of trials, probability is the ration of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of equally likely outcomes. Permutations and combinations are useful in determining the number of outcomes. If compound events are involved, we need to select and apply the addition rule or the multiplication rule to compute probabilities. The outcome of an experiment together with its respective probabilities constitutes a probability distribution. One very common probability distribution is the binomial distribution. It presents the probabilities of various numbers of successes in trials where there are only two possible outcomes to each trial.
