Unformatted text preview: P ( A and B ) = P ( A ) P ( B ) Independence means that the occurrence of event A does not affect the occurrence of event B Conditional Probability (not in text): P(AB) = Probability that A occurs given that B occurred General Multiplication Rule (not in text): P(A and B) = P(A)P(AB) or P(B) P(BA) Tree Diagram: Multiply the probabilities and conditional probabilities along the path you took to get the probability of finishing at that end of that path. simulation using random digits from a table or from computer software to imitate chance behavior sampling distribution tells what values a statistic takes in repeated samples from the same population and how often it takes those values...
