Let x ( i ) refer to our data set in ascending order. 2. Let i p = np/ 100. 3. Find the first index i such that i > i p . 4. The p th percentile is then: x [ p ] = braceleftbigg x ( i 1) + x ( i ) 2 if i 1 = i p x ( i ) otherwise s 2 = 1 n 1 summationdisplay ( x i x ) 2 = 1 n 1 parenleftBig summationdisplay x 2 i ( x i ) 2 n parenrightBig Chebychevs Rule: The proportion of observations that are within k standard deviations ( p k ) of the mean is at least: p k = 1 1 k 2 2 Chapter 2: Probability Multiplication rule Permutation Combination n 1 n 2 n 2 ... n k P k,n = n ! ( n k )! ( n k ) = P k,n k ! = n ! k !( n k )! For any two events A and B : P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ) P ( A B ) The conditional probability of A given that B occurred ( P ( B ) > 0): P ( A  B ) = P ( A B ) P ( B ) Two events A and B are independent if P ( A  B ) = P ( A ) If A and B are independent then P ( A B ) = P ( A ) P ( B ) If A,B,C,D,... are mutually independent then P ( A B...
