Unit 4
You estimate population parameters from sample statistics
The proportion of a .63 is a statistic and point estimate because it is the proportion obtained
from the sample and an estimate of the population proporotion
This value of 0.53 is called a p

Symmetrical outcomes: any given probability. Example toss a coin into the air, chance it will be
heads or tails.
Relative frequencies: what we would expect from the proportion of tosses. The more tosses
thrown, the closer it becomes to
Probability
Unit 3
If X is a normally distributed random variable with mean and standard
deviation , then
P(a<X<b)=P(a<Z<b)P(a<X<b)=P(a<Z<b)
where Z denotes a standard normal random variable. a can be any decimal
number or ; b can be any decimal number or .
