This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions.

Bivariate normal distribution
The joint distribution of two normal random variables

Box plot (or box and whisker plot)
A graphical display of data in which the box contains the middle 50% of the data (the interquartile range) with the median dividing it, and the whiskers extend to the smallest and largest values (or some deined lower and upper limits).

Causal variable
When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable

Center line
A horizontal line on a control chart at the value that estimates the mean of the statistic plotted on the chart. See Control chart.

Central composite design (CCD)
A secondorder response surface design in k variables consisting of a twolevel factorial, 2k axial runs, and one or more center points. The twolevel factorial portion of a CCD can be a fractional factorial design when k is large. The CCD is the most widely used design for itting a secondorder model.

Chisquare (or chisquared) random variable
A continuous random variable that results from the sum of squares of independent standard normal random variables. It is a special case of a gamma random variable.

Continuous random variable.
A random variable with an interval (either inite or ininite) of real numbers for its range.

Covariance
A measure of association between two random variables obtained as the expected value of the product of the two random variables around their means; that is, Cov(X Y, ) [( )( )] =? ? E X Y ? ? X Y .

Critical region
In hypothesis testing, this is the portion of the sample space of a test statistic that will lead to rejection of the null hypothesis.

Curvilinear regression
An expression sometimes used for nonlinear regression models or polynomial regression models.

Design matrix
A matrix that provides the tests that are to be conducted in an experiment.

Estimate (or point estimate)
The numerical value of a point estimator.

Exhaustive
A property of a collection of events that indicates that their union equals the sample space.

F distribution.
The distribution of the random variable deined as the ratio of two independent chisquare random variables, each divided by its number of degrees of freedom.

False alarm
A signal from a control chart when no assignable causes are present

Fisher’s least signiicant difference (LSD) method
A series of pairwise hypothesis tests of treatment means in an experiment to determine which means differ.

Fixed factor (or fixed effect).
In analysis of variance, a factor or effect is considered ixed if all the levels of interest for that factor are included in the experiment. Conclusions are then valid about this set of levels only, although when the factor is quantitative, it is customary to it a model to the data for interpolating between these levels.

Fraction defective
In statistical quality control, that portion of a number of units or the output of a process that is defective.

Gamma function
A function used in the probability density function of a gamma random variable that can be considered to extend factorials

Geometric random variable
A discrete random variable that is the number of Bernoulli trials until a success occurs.
