Unformatted text preview: Lecture 8- Outline and Examples Examples of discrete random variables-Hypergeometric distribution-Bernoulli trials and Binomial distribution Hypergeometric distribution Example: Random sampling without replacing. Random sampling is a statistical technique for gaining information about the composition of a large population. Take a sample of size n without replacement from a population of size N consisting of G good and B = N - G bad elements and let X = the number of good elements in a sample. Then, Hypergeometric distribution Example: Random sampling without replacing. Random sampling is a statistical technique for gaining information about the composition of a large population. Take a sample of size n without replacement from a population of size N consisting of G good and B = N - G bad elements and let X = the number of good elements in a sample. Then, P ( X = g ) = ( G g ) ( N- G n- g ) ( N n ) . Hypergeometric distribution Example: Random sampling without replacing. Random sampling is a statistical technique for gaining information about the composition of a large population. Take a sample of size n without replacement from a population of size N consisting of G good and B = N - G bad elements and let X = the number of good elements in a sample. Then, P ( X = g ) = ( G g ) ( N- G n- g ) ( N n ) . Recall that by convention: ( n k ) = 0 for k < 0 or k > n , so that P ( X = g ) 6 = 0 only for g = max (0 , n- N + G ) , . . . , min ( n , G ). Binomial distribution Example: Random sampling with replacement.
