The range is a measure of spread, and is equal to the maximum point minus the
Another range of spread is standard deviation.
In order to find the sd, follow these steps:
Find the mean
Find each numbers deviation from the average
Can solve systems of equations by using the following methods:
Gauss-Jordan method (what the crap is this?)
Just solve for a variable and substitute it in
The difference between the number of equations and the number of variables is the
number of param
A set is a grouping of any objects.
A set can be null, or empty.
A subset of a set is any grouping of the objects within that set, an empty set, and the set
If x is the number of elements in a set, then the number of subsets of that set is 2^x
In an experiment, there is an observable result.
A trial is a repetition of an experiment
An outcome is the set of possible results for the experiment
The sample space is the set of all possible outcomes as a set
For flipping a coin, s=cfw_h,t
This section deals with probabilities more than just the number of ways things can
Distinguishing between combinations, permutations, and the multiplication principle is as
Combinations dont care about order
Permutations do care about
A conditional probability is the probability that an event will occur if another event has
This is stated mathematically as P of E given F = P(E intersection F)/P(F), given
that P(F) does not equal 0.
The product rule states that the p
The probability of A is the number of ways A can happen divided by the number, S, of
things in the set.
The number of permutations in a set can be defined by the multiplication rule. Basically,
just multiply the number of different components by each oth
