29.Which of the following symbols represents the mean of the sample?a. σb. σ 2c. μd. 30.A box plot is a graphical representation of data that is based on:CHAPTER 41.Each individual outcome of an experiment is called:2.The complement of P(A | B) is:3.When the results of experimentation or historical data are used to assign probability values, the method used to assign probabilities is referred to as the:a. posterior method.b. subjective method.c. classical method.d. relative frequency method.4.If A and B are mutually exclusive events with P(A) = .3000 and P(B) = .5000, then P(A ∩ B) =5.An experiment consists of four outcomes with P(E1) = .2, P(E2) = .3, and P(E3) = .4. The probability of outcome E4 is:6.If P(A|B) = .3 and P(B) = .8, then:

7.The range of probability is:a. any value between -1 to 1.b. zero to one.c. any value larger than zero.d. any value between minus infinity to plus infinity.8.An experiment consists of three steps. There are four possible results on the first step, three possible results on the second step, and two possible results on the third step. The total number of experimental outcomes is:9.Posterior probabilities are:10.Two events are mutually exclusive if:in common.11.Posterior probabilities are computed using:a. the classical method.b. Chebyshev's theorem.c. Bayes' theorem.d. the empirical rule.
