Solutions for Chapter 2.5: Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers 6th Edition
Full solutions for Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers | 6th Edition
A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to a future population. Stability needs to be assumed. See Enumerative study
The arithmetic mean of a set of numbers x1 , x2 ,…, xn is their sum divided by the number of observations, or ( / )1 1 n xi t n ? = . The arithmetic mean is usually denoted by x , and is often called the average
Attribute control chart
Any control chart for a discrete random variable. See Variables control chart.
A distribution with two modes
When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable
A chart used to organize the various potential causes of a problem. Also called a ishbone diagram.
The portion of the variability in a set of observations that is due to only random forces and which cannot be traced to speciic sources, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a common cause.
The probability 1?a associated with a conidence interval expressing the probability that the stated interval will contain the true parameter value.
A correction factor used to improve the approximation to binomial probabilities from a normal distribution.
A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).
A square matrix that contains the correlations among a set of random variables, say, XX X 1 2 k , ,…, . The main diagonal elements of the matrix are unity and the off-diagonal elements rij are the correlations between Xi and Xj .
Cumulative normal distribution function
The cumulative distribution of the standard normal distribution, often denoted as ?( ) x and tabulated in Appendix Table II.
Another name for a probability density function
A matrix that provides the tests that are to be conducted in an experiment.
A probability distribution for a discrete random variable
The expected value of a random variable X is its long-term average or mean value. In the continuous case, the expected value of X is E X xf x dx ( ) = ?? ( ) ? ? where f ( ) x is the density function of the random variable X.
A model that contains only irstorder terms. For example, the irst-order response surface model in two variables is y xx = + ?? ? ? 0 11 2 2 + + . A irst-order model is also called a main effects model
A method of variable selection in regression, where variables are inserted one at a time into the model until no other variables that contribute signiicantly to the model can be found.
In statistical quality control, that portion of a number of units or the output of a process that is defective.
Fractional factorial experiment
A type of factorial experiment in which not all possible treatment combinations are run. This is usually done to reduce the size of an experiment with several factors.
