7- 2 Chapter Seven   continued GOALS FIVE Define and calculate z values. SIX Determine the probability an observation will lie between two points using the standard normal distribution. SEVEN Determine the probability an observation will be above or below a given value using the standard normal distribution. Continuous Probability Distributions Continuous Probability Distributions Goals
7- 3 Discrete and continuous Discrete and continuous distributions A Discrete Discrete distribution is based on random variables which can assume only clearly separated values. Discrete distributions studied include: o Binomial o Poisson. A Continuous Continuous distribution usually results from measuring something. Continuous distributions include: o Uniform o Normal
