STAT: Random experiments(2)

1. 1. What have we learned so far?What have we learned so far? POPULATION SAMPLE • We describe our sample using measurements and data presentation tools • We study the sample to make inferences about the population • What permits us to make the inferential jump from sample to population? FDT, Graphs, Mean, Median, Mode, Standard Deviation, Variance
2. 2. PROBABILITYPROBABILITY POPULATION SAMPLE  In probability, we use theIn probability, we use the population information to inferpopulation information to infer the probable nature of thethe probable nature of the sample.sample.
3. 3. Example: TOSSING A COINExample: TOSSING A COIN  Suppose a coin is tossed onceSuppose a coin is tossed once and the up face is recordedand the up face is recorded  The result we see andThe result we see and recorded is called anrecorded is called an OBSERVATION oror MEASUREMENT  The process of making an observation is called an EXPERIMENT.
4. 4. Definition:Definition: RANDOM EXPERIMENTRANDOM EXPERIMENT  Is aIs a processprocess oror procedureprocedure,, repeatable underrepeatable under basically the same conditionbasically the same condition (this repetition(this repetition is commonly called ais commonly called a TRIALTRIAL)), leading to, leading to well-well- defined outcomesdefined outcomes..  It isIt is randomrandom because we can never tell inbecause we can never tell in advance what the outcome/realization is goingadvance what the outcome/realization is going to be, even if we can specify what the possibleto be, even if we can specify what the possible outcomes are.outcomes are.

6. 6. Definitions:Definitions: SAMPLE POINT & SAMPLE SPACESAMPLE POINT & SAMPLE SPACE  AA SAMPLE POINT is the most basicis the most basic outcome of a random experiment.outcome of a random experiment.  TheThe SAMPLE SPACE is the set of allis the set of all possible outcomes of a randompossible outcomes of a random experiment. It isexperiment. It is denoted by the Greekdenoted by the Greek letter omega (letter omega (ΩΩ) or S) or S. This is also known. This is also known as theas the universal setuniversal set..
7. 7. Examples:Examples:  Sample space of the “Tossing of Coin”Sample space of the “Tossing of Coin” experiment:experiment: ΩΩ == {Head, Tail}{Head, Tail}  Sample spaceSample space of the “Tossing of Die”of the “Tossing of Die” experiment:experiment: ΩΩ == {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}
