Use the following information to answer the next three exercises: In a survey at Kirkwood Ski Resort the following information was recorded:

0–10 11–20 21–40 40+
Ski 10 12 30 8
Snowboard 6 17 12 5

Suppose that one person from [link] was randomly selected.

88. Find the probability that the person was a skier or was age 11–20.

89. Find the probability that the person was a snowboarder given he or she was age 21–40.

90. Explain which of the following are true and which are false.

  1. Sport and age are independent events.
  2. Ski and age 11–20 are mutually exclusive events.
  3. P (Ski AND age 21–40)< P (Ski|age 21–40)
  4. P (Snowboard OR age 0–10)< P (Snowboard|age 0–10)

91. The average length of time a person with a broken leg wears a cast is approximately six weeks. The standard deviation is about three weeks. Thirty people who had recently healed from broken legs were interviewed. State the distribution that most accurately reflects total time to heal for the thirty people.

92. The distribution for X is uniform. What can we say for certain about the distribution for X ¯ when n = 1?

  1. The distribution for X ¯ is still uniform with the same mean and standard deviation as the distribution for X .
  2. The distribution for X ¯ is normal with the different mean and a different standard deviation as the distribution for X .
  3. The distribution for X ¯ is normal with the same mean but a larger standard deviation than the distribution for X .
  4. The distribution for X ¯ is normal with the same mean but a smaller standard deviation than the distribution for X .

93. The distribution for X is uniform. What can we say for certain about the distribution for X when n = 50?

  1. distribution for X is still uniform with the same mean and standard deviation as the distribution for X .
  2. The distribution for X is normal with the same mean but a larger standard deviation as the distribution for X .
  3. The distribution for X is normal with a larger mean and a larger standard deviation than the distribution for X .
  4. The distribution for X is normal with the same mean but a smaller standard deviation than the distribution for X .

what's poissan distribution?
Abdulhakim
It's Poisson. It's a discrete probability distribution that is used to find the probability of an event x happening within a fixed interval of time. E. g. If a shop sells an average of 5 goods on Saturdays, what is the probability that the shop will sell 7 goods on a particular Saturday.

Statistics has been designed as the mathematical science of making decisions and drawing conclusions from data in situations of uncertainty. It includes the designings of experiments, collection, organization, summarization snd interpretation of numerical data.
Aliya
excellent Aliya..... good...Arun....
IRFAN
The degree or strength of relationship(interdependence) between the variables is called "correlation ". Examples: heights and weights of children, ages of husbands and ages of wives at the time of their marriages, marks of students in mathematics and in statistics.
Aliya
The dependence of one variable (dependent variable) one one or more independent variables ( independent variables) is called "regression ".
Aliya
simply regression and multiple regression are the types of regression.

Does standard deviation have measuring unit?

yes, the measuring unit of the data you are looking at, for example centimetres for height.

is that easy to plot a graph between three axis?
Mohamed
yes we can but we do not have that much effective tools. If the graph is normal or less complicated then it is plotted effectively otherwise it will give you nightmare.

whats the difference between discrete and contineous data
umar
Discrete variables are variables that can assume finite number of values. Continuous variables are variables that can assume infinite number of values
Mike
i will give you an example: {0,4,84} it contains discrete or limited values like it can also contain boolean values{true,false} or {0,1} and continuous are like {1,2,3,4,5......} , {0,0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4...........}
umair
a no. of values which are countable are called discrete variables on the other hand, a no. of values which are not countable are called continuous variables
Aliya
Yup, I would like to support Mr.Umair's argument by saying that it can only apply if we have a 3-D graph,otherwise a plane graph will not apply at all

In probability theory and statistics, covariance is a measure of the joint variability of two random variables.[1] If the greater values of one variable mainly correspond with the greater values of the other variable, and the same holds for the lesser values, (i.e., the variables tend to show simila
