SAMPLES PROBABILITY THEORY
PROPERTIES OF SAMPLED DATA
Parameter Ungrouped Data Data Grouped in kClasses
Note: Standard Deviation = s=
Range of sample:
xmax xmin
Mode: Most common
value of x
Median: Middle value or
mean of two middle values
Coefficient of variation:
V= (s/x
)100
Quartiles Q25, Q50, Q75:
Values that divide data set into
4 equal parts
Interquartile range: Q75 Q25
• Rationalize xiby first subtracting a convenient number m
(often the median or mode) followed by division by a
suitable number c(often the class size)
• New data set uiyields mean x
and standard deviation sx
of original set:
x
= cu
+ mand sx= csu
Example
60–62 5 61 –2 –10 20
63–65 18 64 –1 –18 18
66–68 42 67 (m) 000
69–71 27 70 1 27 27
72–74 8 73 2 16 32
Notes: u
is the mean of
the new set x
is the
mean of the original set
sxis the standard

PROBABILITY THEORY
Probability P(S) of “success” = number of events considered
successes (S) total number of possible events (n)
Probability P(F) of “failure” = 1 P(S)
• The probability P(A«B) that two independent events A and B
will both occur, simultaneously or in succession, is:
Example: The probability of drawing a queen
and a heart from two separate decks is:
• The combined probability P(A»B) that one or the other of two
mutually exclusive events Aand Bwill occur is:
Example: The probability of drawing a
queen or a jack from a single deck is:
• The combined probability P(A»B) that one or the other or
both of the two events Aand B will occur is:
Example: The probability of drawing a queen or a heart
or the queen of hearts
from a single deck is:
• The probability that event Boccurs given that event Ahas
already occurred is called the conditional probability P(B|A)
• The probability of the sequence occurring is:
Example: The probability of drawing a queen
and a jack in succession from a single deck is:

Leah — University of Toronto

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
