What is Probability?
In Chapters 2 and 3, we used graphs
and numerical measures to describe
data sets which were usually samples.
We measured how often using

When two variables are measured on a
single experimental unit, the resulting
data are called bivariate data.
You can describe each variable
individually, and you can a
