Quiz 6

A quick quiz consists of a true/false question followed by a multiple-choice question with four possible answers (a,b,c,d). An Unprepared student makes random guesses for both answers.

a. What is the probability of that both answers are correct

b. Is guessing a good strategy?

Random Variables

Everyone look at figure 5-1 on page 204 of our book.

• A random variable is a variable (typically represented by x) that has a single numerical value, determined by chance, for each outcome of a procedure

• A random variable is a variable (typically represented by x) that has a single numerical value, determined by chance, for each outcome of a procedure
• A probability distribution is a description that gives the probability for each value of the random variable. It is often expressed in the format of a graph, table, or formula.

• A discrete random variable has either a finite number of values or a countable number of values.
Random Variables
• A discrete random variable has either a finite number of values or a countable number of values.
• A continuous random variable has infinitely many values, and those value can be associated with measurements on a continuous scale without gaps or interruptions.

Random Variables

Determine whether the given random variable is discrete or continuous.

b. The number of cans of soft drinks that you consumed in the past year.

c. The number of movies currently playing in U.S. theaters.

d. The running time of a randomly selected movie.

e. The cost of making a randomly selected movie.

Requirements for a Probability Distribution

1. where x assumes all possible values.

2. for every individual value of x

Use the range rule of thumb to identify a range of values containing the usual number of peas with green pods. Based on this is it unusual to get only one pea with a green pod? Explain.

Rare Event Rule for Inferential Statistics

If, under a given assumption(such that a coin is fair), the probability of a particular observed event (such as 992 heads in 1000 tosses of a coin) is extremely small, we conclude that the assumption is not correct.

• Unusually high number of successes: x successes among n trials is an unusually high number of successes if the probability of x or more successes is unlikely with a probability of 0.05 or less.
