Discrete Probability Distributions
This chapter will provide an overview of
probability distributions which give the
probability for values of variables that are
determined by chance.
Lets learn how to find the slope, the regression equation and make future

Based on the information below, answer the following questions:
1. Which process shows more variation? What does this mean?
We can see that the spread of the Process B is much higher than the spread of
Process A which indi

Check Yourself: The Normal Curve
"Above Average" Drivers
Using our scale, and the laws of the normal curve, I know that 14% of the population will be
"above average" drivers and that the scores in this group will range from 115 - 130.

c. vertical bar graph
d. a frequency table with the relative frequency of each eye color
9. Which of the box plots on the graph has a la
4. Why is a 99% confidence interval wider than a 95% confidence interval?
Because it doesnt show a field containing x% of the population, but simply the confidence that the
calculator has found the ACTUAL mean of the population.
