**Continuous Probability Distributions**

Recall: P(a < X < b) = = F(b) – F(a) F (a) = μ = E[X] = s2 = E[X2] – μ2 F(x) f(x) x x STAT509

**Continuous Uniform Distribution**

f(x;A,B) = 1/(B-A), A < x < B where [A,B] is an interval on the real number line μ = (A + B)/2 and s2 = (B-A)^2/12 1/(B-A) STAT509

**Continuous Uniform Distribution**

EX: Let X be the uniform continuous random variable that denotes the current measured in a copper wire in milliamperes. 0 < x < 50 mA. The probability density function of X is uniform. f(x) = , 0 < x < 50 What is the probability that a measurement of current is between 20 and 30 mA? What is the expected current passing through the wire? What is the variance of the current passing through the wire? STAT509

Normal Distribution n(x;μ,σ) = E[X] = μ and Var[X] = s2 f(x) x STAT509

Normal Distribution Many phenomena in nature, industry and research follow this bell-shaped distribution. Physical measurements Rainfall studies Measurement error There are an infinite number of normal distributions, each with a specified μ and s. STAT509

**Normal Distribution Characteristics Bell-shaped curve**

- < x < + μ determines distribution location and is the highest point on curve Curve is symmetric about μ s determines distribution spread Curve has its points of inflection at μ + s μ + 1s covers 68% of the distribution μ + 2s covers 95% of the distribution μ + 3s covers 99.7% of the distribution STAT509

**Standard Normal Distribution**

The distribution of a normal random variable with mean 0 and variance 1 is called a standard normal distribution. STAT509

13
**Standard Normal Distribution**

The letter Z is traditionally used to represent a standard normal random variable. z is used to represent a particular value of Z. The standard normal distribution has been tabularized. STAT509

**Standard Normal Distribution**

Given a standard normal distribution, find the area under the curve (a) to the left of z = -1.85 (b) to the left of z = 2.01 (c) to the right of z = –0.99 (d) to right of z = 1.50 (e) between z = and z = 0.58 STAT509

15
**Standard Normal Distribution**

Given a standard normal distribution, find the value of k such that (a) P(Z < k) = .1271 (b) P(Z < k) = .9495 (c) P(Z > k) = .8186 (d) P(Z > k) = .0073 (e) P( 0.90 < Z < k) = .1806 (f) P( k < Z < 1.02) = .1464 STAT509

16
Normal Distribution Any normal random variable, X, can be converted to a standard normal random variable: z = (x – μx)/sx STAT509

Normal Distribution EX: The engineer responsible for a line that produces ball bearings knows that the diameter of the ball bearings follows a normal distribution with a mean of 10 mm and a standard deviation of 0.5 mm. If an assembly using the ball bearings, requires ball bearings mm, what percentage of the ball bearings can the engineer expect to be able to use? STAT509

19
**Normal Distribution EX: Same line of ball bearings.**

What is the probability that a randomly chosen ball bearing will have a diameter less than 9.75 mm? What percent of ball bearings can be expected to have a diameter greater than 9.75 mm? What is the expected diameter for the ball bearings? STAT509

20
Normal Distribution EX: If a certain light bulb has a life that is normally distributed with a mean of 1000 hours and a standard deviation of 50 hours, what lifetime should be placed in a guarantee so that we can expect only 5% of the light bulbs to be subject to claim? STAT509

21
Normal Distribution EX: A filling machine produces “16oz” bottles of Pepsi whose fill are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.25 oz. At what nominal (mean) fill should the machine be set so that no more than 5% of the bottles produced have a fill less than oz? STAT509

22
**Relationship between the Normal and Binomial Distributions**

The normal distribution is often a good approximation to a discrete distribution when the discrete distribution takes on a symmetric bell shape. Some distributions converge to the normal as their parameters approach certain limits. Theorem 6.2: If X is a binomial random variable with mean μ = np and variance s2 = npq, then the limiting form of the distribution of Z = (X – np)/(npq).5 as n , is the standard normal distribution, n(z;0,1). STAT509

23
**Relationship between the Normal and Binomial Distributions**

Consider b(x;15,0.4). Bars are calculated from binomial. Curve is normal approximation to binomial. STAT509

24
**Relationship between the Normal and Binomial Distributions**

Let X be a binomial random variable with n=15 and p=0.4. P(X=5) = ? Using normal approximation to binomial: n(3.5<x<4.5;μ=6, s=1.897) = ? Note, μ = np = (15)(0.4) = 6 s = (npq).5 = ((15)(0.4)(0.6)).5 = 1.897 STAT509

25
**Relationship between the Normal and Binomial Distributions**

EX: Suppose 45% of all drivers in a certain state regularly wear seat belts. A random sample of 100 drivers is selected. What is the probability that at least 65 of the drivers in the sample regularly wear a seatbelt? STAT509
