Exercise Which situation best matches each distribution a) Binomial b) Hypergeometric c) Poisson 1) The number of baby girls born every day in a given  hospital. 2) Out of 100 girls born in a hospital, the number with  a birth defect. 3) Out of the 200 babies in a hospital, half are sick, a  random sample of 10 babies is taken to run blood  test to find out the number that are sick in the  sample.

CONTINUOUS RANDOM  VARIABLE The set of possible values cannot be counted, like  those contained in an interval Examples : lifetime of an electric bulb, length of  service at a service location, total daily sales, etc. probability density function  is used. The  (cumulative)  distribution function  is obtained by  integration

4 Probability density function Area under curve = 1 The function of the  curve is given by f(x). P(a<X<b) = area under  P(X=a) = 0 P(X≥ a) = P(X>a) Entire area  under curve =  100% The proportion of values  between 60 to 80 as a  percentage of all values is  represented by the blue area

Values are uniformly or evenly distributed over a  given interval. Example: Buses arrive at a specified stop at 15- minute intervals starting at 7 a.m. If a passenger  arrives at the stop at a time that is uniformly  distributed between 7 and 7:30, find the probability  that he waits less than 5 minutes for the bus. 5
