These outcomes can be considered as either success or failure.<br />There must be a fixed number of trials.<br />The outcomes of each trial must be independent of each other. In other words, the outcome of one trial does not affect the outcome of another trial.<br />The probability of success is denoted by p and that of failure by q, and p + q=1. The probabilities p and q remain constant for each trial.<br />Note:The success does not mean that the corresponding outcome is considered favorable or desirable and vice versaThe outcome to which the question refers is called a success; the outcome to which it does not refer is called a failure.<br />A.Calculating Binomial Probabilities by Using Binomial Formula<br />For a binomial experiment, the probability of exactly x successes in n trials is given by the binomial formula:<br />P(x) = nCx px qn-x<br />Where;<br />n = the total number of trials<br />p = probability of success<br />q = 1-p = probability of failure<br />x = number of successes in n trials<br />n-x = number of failures in n trials<br />Example 1:<br />Compute the probabilities of X successes, using the binomial formula.<br />a. n= 6, X= 3, p=0.03<br />b. n= 4, X= 2, p=0.18<br />Solution:<br /> a. P(x=3) = 6C3(0.03)3(1-0.03)6-3<br /> = 6C3(0.03)3(0.97)3<br /> = 0.0005<br />b. P(x=2) = <br />Example 2:<br />A survey found that one out five Malaysian says he or she has visited a doctor in any given month. If 10 people are selected at random, find the probability that exactly 3 will have visited a doctor last month.<br />Solution:<br />In this case, n = 10, x = 3, p = 1/5 and q = 4/5.<br />P(x=3) = 10C3(1/5)3(4/5)7<br /> = 0.2013<br />Exercise 1:<br />1.A burglar alarm system has 6 fail-safe components. The probability of each failing is 0.05. Find these probabilities:<br />Exactly 3 will fail<br />Less than 2 will fail<br />None will fail<br />2. A survey from Teenage Research Unlimited found that 30% of teenage consumers receive their spending money from part-time jobs. If 5 teenagers are selected at random, find the probability that at least 3 of them will have part-time jobs.<br />R. H Bruskin Associates Market Research found that 40% of Americans do not think that having a college education is important to succeed in the business world. If a random sample of five American is selected, find these probabilities.<br />Exactly two people will agree with that statement.<br />At most three people will agree with that statement<br />At least two people will agree with that statement <br />Fewer than three people will agree with that statement.<br />It was found that 60% of American victims of health care fraud are senior citizens. If 10 victims are randomly selected, find the probability that exactly 3 are senior citizens.<br />B.Using the Table of Binomial Probabilities<br />The probabilities for a binomial experiment can also be read from the table of binomial probabilities.<br />For any number of trials n:<br />The binomial probability distribution is symmetric if p = 0.5<br />The binomial probability distribution is skewed to the right if p is less than 0.5<br />The binomial probability distribution is skewed to the left if p is greater than 0.5<br />0172085<br />From the table also, it is easier to calculate various from of binomial distribution such as:<br />EquallyP(X = x) = P(X ≤ x) - P(X ≤ x - 1)At mostP(X ≤ x) = P(X ≤ x) (directly from the table)Less thanP(X < x) = P(X ≤ x - 1) At leastP(X ≥ x) = 1 – P(X ≤ x - 1)Greater thanP(X > x) = 1 – P(X ≤ x)From x1 to x2P(x1 ≤ X ≤ x2) = P(X ≤ x2) - P(X ≤ x1 - 1)Between x1 and x2P(x1<X<x2) = P(X ≤ x2 - 1) - P(X ≤ x1)Between x1 to x2P(x1< X ≤ x2) = P(X ≤ x2) - P(X ≤ x1 )<br />Example 3: <br />Compute the probability of X successes using the Binomial Table.<br />n=2, p=0.30, X=1<br />n=4, p=0.45, X=3<br />Solution:<br />a.

(Figure 1)<br />80010011430<br /> Figure 1: Area under a curve between two points.<br />The total probability of all the (mutually exclusive) intervals within which x can assume a value is 1.0. (Figure 2)<br />68580017780<br /> <br /> Figure 2: Total area under a probability distribution.<br />5.2.1NORMAL DISTRIBUTION<br />The normal distribution is the most important and most widely used among all of probability distributions.<br />A large number of phenomena in the real world are normally distributed either exactly or approximately.<br />The normal probability distribution or the normal curve is a bell-shaped (symmetric) curve.<br />Its mean is denoted by while its standard deviation is denoted by . (Figure 3)<br />45720047625<br /> Figure 3: Normal distribution with mean; and standard deviation; .<br />A plotted normal probability distribution will gives a bell-shaped curve which can be illustrated likes:<br />The total area under the curve is 1.0.<br />5715006350<br />The curve is symmetric about the mean.<br />5715001270<br />The two tails of the curve extend indefinitely which means that the curve never touch x- axis.<br />571500274955<br />5.2.1.1THE STANDARD NORMAL DISTRIBUTION<br />Is a normal distribution with = 0 and = 1.<br />The value under the curve indicates the proportion of area in each section. (example figure 2; pg: 27)<br />The units for the standard normal distribution curve are denoted by z and called the z values or z scores. <br />The z value or z score is actually the number of standard deviation that a particular x value is away from the mean.<br />The area under a standard normal distribution curve is used to solve practical application problems such as:<br />finding the % of adult woman whose height is between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 7 inches.<br />A.Finding areas under the standard normal distribution curve<br />571500240030<br />The standard normal distribution table lists the areas under the standard normal curve to the left of z-values from –3.49 to 3.49.<br />Although the z-values on the left side of the mean are negative, the area under the curve is always positive.<br />Example 14:<br />Find the area under the standard normal curve to the left of z = 1.95<br />Solution:<br />022860<br />457200200660<br />Note:<br /> z = 1.95 can be interpreted as area to the left of 1.95.<br />P(z < 1.95) = 0.9744 or<br />P(z < 1.95) = P(z 1.95) = 0.9744<br />The probability that a continuous random variable assumes a single value is zero. Therefore, P(z = 1.95) = 0.<br />Exercise 7:<br />Find the area under the standard normal curve:<br />To the left of z = 1.56<br />To the left of z = -2.87<br />To the right of z = 2.45<br />To the right of z = -1.32<br />From z = 0.85 to z = 1.95<br />Between z = -2.15 and z=1.67<br />Solution:<br />0 1.56To the left of z = 1.56<br />P(z < 1.56) = 0.9406<br />To the left of z = -2.87<br /> 0 2.45 To the right of z = 2.45<br />P(z > 2.45) = 1 - P(z < 2.45)<br /> = 1 - 0.9929<br /> = 0.0071<br />To the right of z = -1.32<br /> 0.85 1.95 From z = 0.85 to z = 1.95<br />P(0.85 z 1.95)<br />= P(z 1.95) – P(z 0.85)<br />= 0.9744 – 0.8023 = 0.1721<br />Between z = -2.15 and z = 1.67<br />B.Converting an x Value to a z Value<br />For a normal variable x, a particular value of x can be converted to its corresponding z value by using the formula:<br />z = X - <br /> <br />where and are the mean and standard deviation of the normal distribution of x, respectively.<br />Remember!The z value for the mean of a normal distribution is always zero.<br />Example 14:<br />Let x be a continuous random variable that has a normal distribution with a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10. Convert the following x values to z values.<br />a)55b) 35<br />Solution:<br />For the given normal distribution, = 50 and =10<br />a) The z value for x = 55 is computes as follows:<br />z = X - = 55 – 50 = 0.50<br /> 10<br />b) z = 35 – 50 = -1.5 <br /> 10<br />Example 15:<br />Let x be a continuous random variable that is normally distributed with a mean of 65 and a standard deviation of 15. Find the probability that x can assumes a value:<br />a)less than 43<br />b)greater than 74<br />c)between 56 and 71<br />Solution:<br />a) P(X < 43) = P(z < X - ) <br /> <br /> = P(z < 43 – 65) <br /> 15<br /> = P(z < -1.47)<br /> = 0.0708<br />b) P(X > 74) = P(z > 74 – 65)<br /> 15<br /> = P(z > 0.6)<br /> = 1 – P(z < 0.6)<br /> = 1 – 0.7257<br /> = 0.2743<br />c) P(71 < X < 56) = P(71 – 65 < z < 56 – 65) <br /> 15 15<br /> = P(0.4 < z < -0.6)<br /> = P(z < 0.4) – P(z < -0.6)<br /> = 0.6554 – 0.2743<br /> = 0.3811<br /> <br />Exercise 6:<br />1.Let x denote the time takes to run a road race. Supposed x is approximately normally distributed with mean of 190 minutes and standard deviation of 21 minutes. If one runner is selected at random, what is the probability that this runner will complete this road race?<br />in less than 150 minutes<br />in 205 to 245 minutes<br />2.The mean number of hours a student spends on the computer is 3.1 hours per day.
