Informational review on chapters 5 6 8 amp 9 Emily Binakonsky I Chapter 5 1 Binomial Distributions To use the Bernoulli process the experiment must meet the following criteria a The experiment must have repeated trials b The outcome of each trial has to be either a success or failure c The probability of success p remains constant from trial to trial d The repeated trials must be independent of each other Binomial random variable is the number X of successes in n Bernoulli trials The binomial distribution is the probability distribution of the discrete random variable It s values will be denoted by bx n p bxnp 219an x x 012 The mean and variance are a np and 02 npq 2 Hypergeometric Distribution Must mean the following criteria a A random sample of size n is selected wo replacement from N items b Of the N items k is classified as successes and N k are classified as failures Hypergeometric random variable is the number X of successes of a hypergeometric experiment The
