Stat 4714 Exam Two Objectives Material comes from chapters 4 – 6 (1) Determine if a continuous function is a valid probability distribution (2) Use continuous distribution functions to find probabilities (3) Find mean and standard deviation of continuous distribution (4) Use gamma, exponential, weibull and normal distributions (5) Use normal approximation to binomial to find probabilities for a binomial distribution (6) Find reliability functions and hazard rates (7) Find reliability of series, parallel and systems that have both series and parallel components (8) Determine if a function of two variables is a valid probability distribution (9) Use joint distributions to find probabilities (10) Find marginal distributions for discrete and continuous distributions (11) Find and standard deviation of marginal distributions (12) Find a conditional distribution and calculate a conditional probability (13) Find covariance and correlation using joint distribution (14) Use transformation method to find distributions of functions of random

(16) Use properties of linear combinations to find means, variances and probabilities (17) Compute and interpret the sample mean, sample variance, sample standard deviation, sample median, and sample range, quartiles, interquartile range (18) Create stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and boxplots by hand for small sample sizes (19) Use a boxplot to compare groups and find values for median, quartiles and IQR 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. (HW 5 - 8) 3) Review the examples in your class notes and in-class exercises. 4) Look over the review material. NOTE: On the exam, there will be some questions where you will be required to set up the integral to do something but not evaluate the integral, due to the timed nature of this exam....
