Stat 4714 Exam 1 Objectives (1) Use set notation to list possible outcomes of simple or complex experiments. (2) Use probability tree to list possible outcomes of complex experiments. (3) Use counting methods (multiplication rule, permutations, combinations) to determine number of outcomes. (4) Use probability rules to find probabilities. (5) Find probability of series, parallel or mixed systems. (6) Determine if a function is a discrete probability distribution. (7) Use discrete probability distribution function to find probabilities. (8) Find expected value, variance and standard deviation for a discrete probability distribution. (9) Determine if a variable follows a binomial, geometric, poisson, negative binomial distribution , using both characteristics of the distribution or the moment generating function (10) Find

(11) Find expected value, variance and standard deviation for a binomial, geometric, poisson, negative binomial random variable. (12) Compare expected values from a distribution to observed sample data to determine if data could be from the distribution. (13) Use derivatives of moment generating functions to find mean, variance and standard deviation. Preparation Tips: 1) Make sure you have a note or formula on your formula sheets for each of the items above. (One 8.5x11 sheet of paper using both front and back) 2) Review all homework solutions. (HW2, HW3, HW4) 3) Review the examples in your class notes…chapters 1 – 3. 4) Review the in class exercises. 5) Look over the review material....
