1 Math 166 Fall 2008 c Heather Ramsey Page 1 Math Exam 2 Review NOTE: For reviews of the other sections on Exam 2, refer to the first page of WIR #4 and #5. Section Measures of Central Tendency Population vs. Sample Statistics - In statistics, a sample is a group of items (or people) chosen to represent a larger group. This larger group is called a population. When you have data on every single object in a group, then any statistics calculated using ALL of the data values are called population statistics. If statistics are calculated using only a subset or a sample of the data values in a group, then these statistics are called sample statistics. To get a sample that is representative of the entire population, the sample must be chosen randomly. As long as the sample is random, the statistics of the sample can be used to approximate the statistics of the population. Average, or Mean - The average, or mean, of the n numbers x 1,x 2,...,x n is calculated as x 1 + x 2 + +x n n and is represented as µ if these data values are from a population or x if these data values are from a sample. Expected Value of a Random Variable X - Let X denote a random variable that assumes the values x 1,x 2,...,x n with associated probabilities p 1, p 2,..., p n, respectively. Then the expected value of X, written E(X), is given by E(x) = x 1 p 1 + x 2 p 2 + +x n p n Mean of a Binomial Random Variable X - If X is a binomial random variable associated with a binomial experiment consisting of n independent trials with probability of success p, then the mean, or expected value, of X is E(X) = np. Median - The median is the middle value in a set of data arranged in increasing or decreasing order (when there is an odd number of entries). If there is an even number of entries, the median is the average of the two middle numbers. Mode - The mode is the value that occurs most frequently in the set of data. When a data set has two values that occur an equal number of times and this frequency is larger than the frequency of any other data value, then we say the data set is bimodal. If no data value occurs more frequently than any other, then we say that the data set has no mode. Histograms and Measures of Central Tendency The expected value of a random variable X can be thought of as the center of balance of a histogram. The median of a data set is the place where the area of the histogram is cut in half. The mode of a data set corresponds to the tallest rectangle of the histogram. Section Measures of Spread Population Variance - a measure of dispersion (or spread) that is calculated by finding the average of the squares of the deviations from the mean. Population variance is denoted by Var(X) or σ 2, and the units of variance are the square of the units of the original data.

2 Math 166 Fall 2008 c Heather Ramsey Page 2 Population Standard Deviation - a measure of dispersion (spread) that is calculated by taking the square root of the population variance. The units of standard deviation are the same as the units of the random variable, and population standard deviation is denoted by σ (on the calculator, σ X ). Sample Variance - The variance of a sample with n data values is calculated by dividing by n 1 instead of n when taking the average of the squares of the deviations from the mean. Sample variance is denoted by s 2. Sample Standard Deviation - The standard deviation of a sample is found by taking the square root of the sample variance. Sample standard deviation is denoted by s (on the calculator, S X ). Variance and Standard Deviation of a Binomial Random Variable X - If X is a binomial random variable associated with a binomial experiment consisting of n independent trials with probability of success p and probability of failure q, then the variance of X is Var(X) = npq, and the standard deviation of X is σ = npq. Chebychev s Inequality - Let X be a random variable with expected value µ and standard deviation σ. Then the probability that a randomly chosen outcome of the experiment lies between µ kσ and µ + kσ is at least 1 1 k 2 ; that is, Section The Normal Distribution Properties of the Normal Curve P(µ kσ X µ + kσ) 1 1 k 2 1. The normal curve is completely determined by µ and σ. (σ determines the sharpness or flatness of the curve.) 2. The curve has a peak at x = µ. 3. The curve is symmetric with respect to the vertical line x = µ. 4. The curve always lies above the x-axis but approaches the x-axis as x extends indefinitely in either direction. 5. The area under the curve and above the x-axis is For any normal curve, 68.27% of the area under the curve lies within 1 standard deviation from the mean, 95.45% of the area lies within 2 standard deviations of the mean, and 99.73% of the area lies within 3 standard deviations of the mean. The standard normal random variable Z has mean 0 and standard deviation Five cards are chosen without replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. In how many ways can this be done if (a) all five cards must be of the same suit? (b) exactly four of the cards must be of the same rank?

(c) X = the weight of a newborn baby. (d) X = the number of hours my cat Mouse sleeps in one day. (e) X = the number cards drawn with replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards until a club is drawn. 5. The following game costs \$3 per play: A bag contains 2 gold coins and 28 silver coins. The player grabs two coins from the bag without replacement.
