Unformatted text preview: Standard Normal Distribution: Mean = 0; Variance = 1 Skew: Median < Mean = Right Skewed; Median > Mean = Left Skewed Notation: X ~ N(10,5 2 ), 10 is the mean, 5 is the SD. Variance of Uniform Distribution: ((b a + 1) 2 1) / 12 = V(x) on [a,b] Binomial Distribution: Random experiment consisting of n repeated trials which satisfy: Independent trials; Each trial has two outcomes, success and failure; probability of a success P in each trial is consistent. Mean of Binomial Distribution = n*p Variance of Binomial Distribution: n*p (n*p) 2 Poisson Process: A random experiment is defined as a Poisson process if: The probability of more than one occurrence is negligible; the occurrences of the event in non-overlapped sub-intervals are independent; the probability of one occurrence of the event in a sub-interval is the same throughout all sub-intervals and proportional to length....
