Probability and Statistics4 Probability as a Percentage

Probability and Statistics5 Equally Likely Events We can infer the probabilities of events when all events are equally likely. experimentexample probability flipping a coin tossing a die Selecting a card from a complete deck* *but no jokers in the deck Examples:

Probability and Statistics14 A coin is flipped twice. What is the probability that we get heads both times?

Probability and Statistics15 A die is tossed. What is the probability that the result is an odd number?

Probability and Statistics16 A coin is flipped twice. What is the probability that there is at least one head?

Probability and Statistics17 A coin is flipped twice. What is the probability that there is at least one head?

Probability and Statistics18 A coin is flipped twice. What is the probability that either the 1 st toss is heads or the 2 nd toss is tails? The event “1 st toss heads” and the event “2 nd toss tails” are not mutually exclusive.

Probability and Statistics19 From a standard deck of cards (with no jokers), 4 cards are selected at random. What is the probability that all 4 are aces?

Probability and Statistics34 Mean: the average of the numbers Mode: the value that occurs most often Median: the middle value The “Middle” of a Set of Measured Values Example: Measured values: 17, 9, 12, 14, 13, 18, 12, 15 Reordered values: 9, 12, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18

Probability and Statistics37 Sample Variance for a Set of Measured Values Example: Measured values: 17, 9, 12, 14, 13, 18, 12, 15

from NCEES, FE Reference Handbook 39Probability and Statistics Standard Deviation

Probability and Statistics40 Sample Variance vs. Population Variance For both variances we calculate the difference between each value and a mean, then we square the differences and sum them, then we divide by a number. Sample Variance Population Variance

Probability and Statistics41 We have measured the following values: 17, 9, 12, 14, 13, 18, 12, 15 The mean has been modeled as 12.5. What is the population variance? A.8.5 B.9.0 C.9.5 D.9.9

Probability and Statistics52 A set of measured values are modeled as having a normal distribution with mean 5.0 and variance 4.0. What is the probability that a new value will be larger than 5.8? A.0.15 B.0.22 C.0.28 D.0.34

Probability and Statistics54 A set of measured values are modeled as having a normal distribution with mean 5.6 and variance 4.0. What is the probability that a new value will be at least 0.4 away from the mean (in either direction)? A.0.84 B.0.90 C.0.95 D.0.99

Probability and Statistics55 A set of measured values are modeled as having a normal distribution with mean 5.6 and variance 4.0. What is the probability that a new value will be within 0.4 of the mean? A.0.10 B.0.16 C.0.20 D.0.25

from NCEES, FE Reference Handbook 56Probability and Statistics Confidence Interval

from NCEES, FE Reference Handbook 57Probability and Statistics Parameter for Calculation of Confidence Interval

Probability and Statistics58 We have a set of 100 measured values for a physical quantity. We believe a normal distribution is the correct model for these data and that the variance is 9.0. However, the population mean has not yet been determined. We estimate this mean by computing the sample mean from the data, and this estimated mean is 8.3. If we want a confidence level of 95%, what is the confidence interval for the mean?
