rubabmty that 3 Emma Wm three thrEn has aHEastunE gm Conditional Probability Given the Multiplication Rule we can rewrite it as PB APAandB PA The conditional probability of event B occurring given that A has already occurred can be found by dividing the probability of events A and B both occun39ing by the probability of event A Testing for Independence Two events A and B are independent if PBA

when small samples are dravm 39om large populations For example pollsters use this guideline to treat the members oftheir samples as independent If a sample size is no more than 5 of the size of the population treat the selections as being independent even if the selections are made without replacement so they are technically dependent Pollsters use this guideline when they survey roughly 1000 adults from a population ofmillions they assume independence even though they sample without replacement When to treat dependent data as if it is independent Example With one method ofthe procedure called acceptance sampling a sample of items is randomly selected without replacement and the entire batch is rejected if there is at least one defect Suppose the Medtyme Company hasjust manufactured 5000 blood pressure monitors and 4 are defective lf3 of them are selected and tested what is the probability that the entire batch will be rejected Calculate using replacement and without replacement

simulation Simulating the tossing ofa coin Excel Simulating the tossing oftwo dice TI83 Plus amp StatDisk Simulating the birthday problem TI83 Plus amp Excel Things to Consider When Running a

events in which the rst event can occur m ways and the secon event can occur n ways the events together can occur m n ways Note this extends to any number of events Example The typical home alarm system has a code that consists offour digits The digits 0 through 9 can be repeated and they must be entered in the correct order nd the correct one How many different codes are possible 47 Counting Factorial Rule A collection ofn different items can be arIanged in order n factorial different ways This re ects the fact that the rst item may be selected n different ways the second item may be selected n1 different ways etc nnn1n221 eg 5 5x4x3x2x1 120 Example Suppose you want to design a travel route that has you visit each state capital exactly once How many possible routes are there 47 Counting Permutations Rules Permutations Rule when items are all different The number ofpermutations or sequences of ritems from n available items without replacement is p i Mir Example You belong to
