STAT 3470
Probability
Lab Assignment #1
OBJECTIVES:
To set up a simulation of a simple random experiment.
To introduce the concept of a discrete probability distribution.
To learn how the size of the sample affects the relative frequency probability.
PROCEDURE AND ANALYSIS:
1.
Start Minitab.
2.
Label the first 12 columns (by entering the label in the gray cell at the top of the column) as follows:
C1 = SS 10
C4 = SS 100
C7 = SS 2000
C10 = Sample sizes
C2 = SS 20
C5 = SS 500
C8 = SS 5000
C11 = Relative Freq Probability
C3 = SS 50
C6 = SS 1000
C9 = SS 10000
C12 = Theoretical Probability
3.
Click on
Calc > Random Data > Integer
First generate 10 rows of data and store it in column C1 (SS 10 for sample size of 10).
Enter 1 as the
minimum value and 6 as the maximum value.
Next, generate 20 rows of data and store it in C2 (SS 20
for sample size of 20). The minimum is 1 and the maximum is 6.
Continue to repeat this procedure
until you have filled the first 9 columns.
The title of the column indicates how many rows of data
you should generate each time.
