Please go through all examples discussed in class and the homework problems. Some important concepts and formulas are listed below: Chapter 1: Histogram shape Sample mean, medium, quartiles Range, sample variance, sample standard deviation Chapter 2: Sample space The union, intersection and complement of sets P ( A ) = 1 - P ( A 0 ) P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ) - P ( A B ) P ( A B C ) = P ( A )+ P ( B )+ P ( C ) - P ( A B ) - P ( B C ) - P ( A C ) + P ( A B C ) If A 1 ,A 2 ,A 3 ,... is an infinite collection of disjoint events, then P ( A 1 A 2 A 3 ... ) = X i =1 P ( A i ) P ( A ) = N ( A ) N The product rule for ordered pairs and k-tuple
