Experiment
any action whose outcomes are recordable data
Event, A,
a set of one or more outcomes that are of interest to the experimenter
Sample Space
the set of all possible outcomes of an experiment
Probability
is a measure of likely that an Event A will occuer
p(A)
measure of the likelihood that an event A will occuure
A'
complement of A, is the set of outcomes that do not correspond to the event a
p(A)+ p(A') =1
Random Variable X
is a variable whose value varies according to the rules of probability
p(x)
the probability distribution of random variable,X, is the proability it will take on each of its possible values
Cumulative Distribution Function P(x)
is defined as the probability that the observed value will be at most X
A U B
a or b or both
A n B
The probability both A and B occur
Mutually Exclusive
If events A and B have no outcomes in common
Contingency Table
is a table whose rows represent the possible value of one column and who rows represent another, and entries show the combination and the end shows the table
Bi variate Probability
the probabilities associated with two variables
Independant
the probability that one event occurs on any given trial is not affected or changed by other events
