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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
