Probability: proportion, percent, chance, likelihood | What have I been given? Mean m and SD s _________________________________________ sample size n and p , population proportion | Are np > 5 AND n(1 - p) > 5 ? Yes _____________________________________ No Do I have sample size n AND probability is for an Average ? PROPORTION_________________ BINOMIAL NO____________________________YES n, p, p ^ (sample proportion) n, p, X( # successes) | _ | | | P(X < 30 ) P( X < 32 ) P( p ^ < .75 ) P( X < 10 ) Must use Binomial Function Also must use the Binomial for exact probabilities ex.

Use -1E99 for negative infinity, and +1E99 for positive infinity Probability given: Want to find the value of a point under the curve example: P ( X < a ) = .3 or P ( X > a ) = .7 NOTE: shade normal curve in the direction of the arrow and the size of shaded area must equal the probability Use invNorm ( Percentile at the desired point under the curve, Mean, SD ) This gives the value of a in the probability statement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
