Define experiment; that is, describe the process used to make an observation and the type of observation that will be recorded. List the sample points Assign probabilities to the sample points Determine the collection of sample points contained in the event of interest Sum the sample point probabilities to get an event probability o Combination rule Sample of n elements drawn from set of elements 3.2 Unions and intersections o Compound events Union outcomes in either A or B or both Intersection outcome in both A & B 3.3 Complementary Events

o Event that A does not occur o All events not in A o Rule of complements Sum equals 1 3.4 Additive Rule and Mutually Exclusive Events o Events do not occur simultaneously o Additive rule Get compound probabilities for union of events 3.5 Conditional Probability o Event probability given another event occurred o Revise original sample space to account new information Eliminates certain outcomes 3.6 Multiplicative Rule and Independent Events o Used to get compound probabilities for intersection of events o Statistical independence Occurrence does not affect probability of another event Formula: Note: , where n P r is the formula for permutations of n objects taken r at a time. Example: How many different committees of 4 students can be chosen from a group of 15? Answer: There are possible combinations of 4 students from a set of 15. There are 1365 different committees.

    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.
