multiplication rule PA and B PAPB If A and B are dependent then we need a general multiplication rule PA and B PAPBA where PBlA is the conditional probability that B occurs given the information that A occurs chnstopher hollomen The 0hlo State UrilvErSlty Summer 2005 0 Definition of independence Two events A and B are Independent If PAlB PA and PBlA PB So our old multi lication rule for

A statistic from a random sample or randomized experiment is a random variable The probability distribution of the statistic is its sampling distribution W The population distribution of a variable is the distribution of its values for all members of the population The population distribution is also the probability distribution of the variable when we choose one individual from the population at random The Binomial Distribution The Binomial Setting 1 There are a fixed number n of observations 2 The n observations are all independent 3 Each of the observations falls into one of just two categories which for convenience we call success and failure 4 The probability of a success call it p is the same for each observation Chrlstbpher hellemeh The ohle State Unlverslty Summer zuu Sampling Distribution for Counts and Proportions Count X number of occurrences of some outcome In a fixed number of observations Sam le Proportion number of occurrences out of he number of observations Xn Chrlstbpher hellem eh The ohle State Unlverslty Summer zuu Binomial Distribution The distribution of the count X of successes in the binomial setting is called the binomial distribution with parameters n and p o n is the number of observations 0 p is the probability of a success on any one observation 0 The possible values of X are whole numbers from 0 to n Notation X is Bn p or X N Bn P Chrlstbpher hellem eh The ohle State Unlverslty Summer zuu For each of the following situations indicate whether the binomial distribution is a reasonable probability model for the random variable X a You observe the sex of the next 50 children born at a local hospital X is the number of girls among them b A couple decides to continue to have children until their first girl is born X is the total number of children the couple has Christnpher hellemeh The ohle State University Summer znn c A chemist repeats a solubility test 10 times on the same substance Each test is conducted at a temperature 10 degrees higher than the previous test She counts the number of times that the substance dissolves d Fifty students are tau ht about the binomial distribution in class T e are the given a short quiz on the Subject The num er of stu ents who pass is counte Christnpher helium eh The ohle State University Summer znn The Binomial Distribution as a Sampling Distribution We use the binomial distribution in statistical inference when we have count data in the binomial setting and we want to make inferences about the total proportion of successes In a population When the population is much lager than the sample the count of successes in a S of size n has approxq39natey a Bnp distribution if the population proportion of successes is p Rule of thumb use the binomial sampling distribution for counts when the population is at least 10 times larger than the sample Christnpher hellemeh The ohle State University Summer znn Finding Binomial Probabilities Assume X Bnp
