Basic Terminology:-• Trial & Event• Exhaustive number of cases• Favorable number of cases• Mutually Exclusive events• Independent events
• Classical Method:- Assigning probabilities based on the assumption of equally likely outcomes. favorable no. of cases probabilit y of an event Exhaustive no. of cases
• Relative Frequency Method:- Assigning probabilities based on experimentation or historical data.
Probability rules:-1. The case where one event or another event occur.2. The case where two or more events will both occur.
Ex:-Union shop steward Peter has drafted a set of wage and benefit demands to be presented to management. To get an idea of worker support for the package, he randomly polls the two largest groups of workers at his plant, The machinists (M) and the inspectors (I). He polls 30 of each group with the following results: Opinion of package M I Strongly support 9 10 Mildly support 11 3 Undecided 2 2 Mildly oppose 4 8 Strongly oppose 4 7i. What is the pbt that a machinist randomly selected from the polled group mildly supports the package?ii. What is the pbt that an inspector randomly selected from the polled group is undecided about the package?iii. What is the pbt that a worker (machinist or inspector) randomly selected from the polled group strongly or mildly supports the package?iv. What types of pbts are these?
Addition rule:If A and B are any two events and are disjoint then P(A or B)= The Pbt of either A or B happening = P(A)+P(B)
If A and B are any two events and are not disjoint then P(A or B)= The Pbt of either A or B happening = P(A)+P(B)-P(AB)P(A) is that Pbt of A happeningP(B) is that Pbt of B happeningP(AB) is that Pbt of A and B happening together

Posterior probabilities or Bayes’ theorem:-• Often we begin probability analysis with initial or prior probabilities.• Then, from a sample, special report, or a product test we obtain some additional information.• Given this information, we calculate revised or posterior probabilities.• Bayes’ theorem provides the means for revising the prior probabilities. Application Prior New Posterior of Bayes’ Probabilities Information Probabilities Theorem

1. T.C.Fox, marketing director for Metro-Goldmine Motion Pictures, believe that the studio’s upcoming release has a 60% chance of being a hit, a 25% chance of being a moderate success, and a 15% chance of being a flop. To test the accuracy of his opinion, T.C.Fox has scheduled two test screenings. After each screening, the audience rates the film on scale of 1 to 10, 10 being best. From his long experience in the industry, T.C. Fox knows that 60% of the time a hit picture will receive a rating of 7 or higher; 30% of the time, it will receive a rating of 4,5, or6; and 10% of the time, it will receive a rating of 3 or lower.
