Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-4 Discrete Random Variables Can only assume a countable number of values Examples: Roll a die twice Let X be the number of times 4 comes up (then X could be 0, 1, or 2 times) Toss a coin 5 times. Let X be the number of heads (then X = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5)

13
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-13 Binomial Probability Distribution A fixed number of observations, n e.g.: 15 tosses of a coin; ten light bulbs taken from a shipment Two mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive categories e.g.: head or tail in each toss of a coin; defective or not defective light bulb Generally called “success” and “failure” Probability of success is p, probability of failure is 1 – p Constant probability for each observation e.g.: Probability of getting a tail is the same each time we toss the coin

14
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-14 Binomial Probability Distribution (continued) Observations are independent The outcome of one observation does not affect the outcome of the other Two sampling methods Infinite population without replacement Finite population with replacement

15
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-15 Examples A manufacturing plant labels items as either defective or acceptable A firm bidding for contracts will either get a contract or not A marketing research firm receives survey responses of “yes I will buy” or “no I will not buy” New job applicants either accept the offer or reject it

16
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-16 Rule of Combinations The number of combinations of selecting X objects out of n objects is where: n! =n(n - 1)(n - 2)... (2)(1) X! = X(X - 1)(X - 2)... (2)(1) 0! = 1 (by definition)

17
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-17 P(X) = probability of X successes in n trials, with probability of success p on each trial X = number of ‘successes’ in sample, (X = 0, 1, 2,..., n) n = sample size (number of trials or observations) p = probability of “success” P(X) n X ! nX p(1-p) X n X ! ()! Example: Flip a coin four times, let x = # heads: n = 4 p = 0.5 1 - p = (1 -.5) =.5 X = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 Binomial Distribution Formula

26
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-26 The Hypergeometric Distribution “n” trials in a sample taken from a finite population of size N Sample taken without replacement Trials are dependent Concerned with finding the probability of “X” successes in the sample where there are “A” successes in the population

27
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-27 Hypergeometric Distribution Formula Where N = Population size A = number of successes in the population N – A = number of failures in the population n = sample size X = number of successes in the sample n – X = number of failures in the sample (Two possible outcomes per trial)

28
Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-28 Properties of the Hypergeometric Distribution The mean of the hypergeometric distribution is The standard deviation is Where is called the “Finite Population Correction Factor” from sampling without replacement from a finite population

Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-29 Using the Hypergeometric Distribution ■Example: 3 different computers are checked from 10 in the department. 4 of the 10 computers have illegal software loaded. What is the probability that 2 of the 3 selected computers have illegal software loaded? N = 10n = 3 A = 4 X = 2 The probability that 2 of the 3 selected computers will have illegal software loaded is.30

Statistics for Managers Using Microsoft Excel, 4e © 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 5-33 The Poisson Distribution Apply the Poisson Distribution when: You wish to count the number of times an event occurs in a given interval The probability that an event occurs in the interval is the same for all intervals of equal size The number of events that occur in one interval is independent of the number of events that occur in the other intervals The average number of events per interval or unit is (lambda)
