15
15 Probability (Cont.) Rules or axioms: Addition rule P(AUB) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A^B) Conditional probability P(A/B) = P(A^B)/P(B) Independence

16
16 Probability ( Cont.) Conditional probability P(A/B) = P(A^B)/P(B) Independence P(A)*P(B) = P(A^B) So P(A/B) = P(A)

17
17 Probability (Cont.) Discrete Binomial Distribution P(k) = C n (k) p k (1-p) n-k n repeated independent Bernoulli trials k successes and n-k failures

18
18 Binomial Random Number Generator Take 50 states Suppose each state was a battleground state, with probability 0.5 of winning that state What would the distribution of states look like? How few could you win? How many could you win?

25 III. Inference Rates and Proportions Population Means and Sample Means Population Variances and Sample Variances Decision Theory

26
26 Decision Theory In inference, I.e. hypothesis testing, and confidence interval estimation, we can make mistakes because we are making guesses about unknown parameters The objective is to minimize the expected cost of making errors E(C) = C(I) + C(II)

27
27 Sample Proportions from Polls Where n is sample size and k is number of successes

28
28 Sample Proportions So estimated p-hat is approximately normal for large sample sizes

29
29 Sample Proportions Where the sample size is large

30 Problem 9.38 A commercial for a household appliances manufacturer claims that less than 5% of all of its products require a service call in the first year. A consumer protection association wants to check the claim by surveying 400 households that recently purchased one of the company’s appliances

31
31 Problem 9.38 (Cont.) What is the probability that more than 10% require a service call in the first year? What would you say about the commercial’s honesty if in a random sample of 400 households, 10% report at least one service call?

35
35 Problem 9.26, Sample Means The dean of a business school claims that the average MBA graduate is offered a starting salary of $55,000. The standard deviation of the offers is $4600. What is the probability that in a sample of 38 MBA graduates, the mean starting salary is less than $53,000?

A random sample of 18 containers whose packaging states that the contents weighs 8 ounces was drawn.
