Population mean Sample mean Sample variance The Empirical Rule states: If the histogram is bell shaped we can conclude 1. Approximately 68% of all observations fall within one standard deviation of the mean . 2. Approximately 95% of all observations fall within two standard deviations of the mean. 3. Approximately 99.7% of all observations fall within three standard deviations of the mean. Given 2 defined events A and B: P(A or B) = P(A B) = P(A occurs or B occurs or both) Called a union P(A and B) = P(A B) = P(A and B both occur) Called an intersection The probability of the intersection is called the joint probability. P(Ā) = P(A’) = P(A

So P(A B) = P(A) + P(B) for two mutually exclusive events. Conditional Probability: Multiplication Rule: P(A B) = P(A)*P(B|A) = P(B)*P(A|B) If A and B are independent events, then P(A B) = P(A)*P(B)...
