- Random Events - Random event- something that may or may not occur, and that which we can assign probability to - Random Variable- generally denoted as “x”, which is a possible value - Complement- is its non-occurance, or its opposite - EX. Flip a coin and it comes up tails - Probability - Probability- way of quantifying the likelihood (chance) that some random event occurs - EX. if there’s a 50% chance of happening the probability is 0.5 - Probability is between 0 and 1 - Relative Frequency - Relative frequency- expresses how often an event occurs as a proportion of how often it potentially could have occurred - The “relative frequency” interpretation of probability states that the probability of a speciﬁc outcome is the proportion over the long run (if we keep repeating a random process indeﬁnitely) - EX. if the probability is 0.5, no matter how many ﬂips we can expect heads 50% - Probability Notation - P(x): the probability event X occurs - 1- P(x): the probability event X doesn’t occur - EX. Probability of rain tomorrow is 0.3, probability it wont rain is 1- 0.3 = 0.7 - Standardization and Z-Scores - When values are standardized, they are put into some kind of common unit - Z-Score- value that has been standardized in this manner: an observed value of a variable by ﬁnding the distance from its mean in terms of standard deviation -If the mean and standard deviation are unknown…. X to Z to P N (0,1) Normal Distribution - Reference point- center of distribution - EX. ACT and SAT - EX. ACT: Z= 25-21 / 4.7 = 0.851 SAT: Z= 1150-1008 / 114 = 1. 246 -Puts the two test scores in the same unit so they can be accurately compared -Interpretation of Z- Scores -Positive score means the observation is above the mean and vise versa for when the score is negative - Magnitude indicates how far away the data point is from the mean in terms of standard deviation - Z scores put whatever you’re comparing in the same unit - Chebyshev’s Rule -gives the values in the distribution must lie within K standard deviations of the mean -EX. (1- (1/2^2)) X 100 = 75% - Normal Distribution - Bell shape also known as Gaussian - Chebyshev’s rule applies to any distribution - Empirical Rule- like Chebyshev’s Rule, but tailored speciﬁcally to normal distributions - Standard Normal Distribution • Horizontal Axis is Z - The Empirical Rule • Tells us what % of the values fall within 1,2, and 3 standard deviations of the mean • Comparable to Chebyshev’s Rule but only applies to normal distributions
