© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 4-8 The event of a triangle AND blue in color Joint Events Two triangles that are blue

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 4-9 Special Events Impossible event e.g.: Club & diamond on one card draw Complement of event For event A, all events not in A Denoted as A’ e.g.: A: queen of diamonds A’: all cards in a deck that are not queen of diamonds   Null Event

Chap 4-10 Special Events Mutually exclusive events Two events cannot occur together e.g.: -- A: queen of diamonds; B: queen of clubs Events A and B are mutually exclusive Collectively exhaustive events One of the events must occur The set of events covers the whole sample space e.g.: -- A: all the aces; B: all the black cards; C: all the diamonds; D: all the hearts Events A, B, C and D are collectively exhaustive Events B, C and D are also collectively exhaustive (continued)

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 4-24 Bayes’s Theorem Using Contingency Table Fifty percent of borrowers repaid their loans. Out of those who repaid, 40% had a college degree. Ten percent of those who defaulted had a college degree. What is the probability that a randomly selected borrower who has a college degree will repay the loan?

© 2002 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 4-27 Discrete Random Variable Discrete random variable Obtained by counting (1, 2, 3, etc.) Usually a finite number of different values e.g.: Toss a coin five times; count the number of tails (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 times)
