Quantitative analysis
1. Population Mean: calculated as
Where there are N members in the population and each observation is Xi i =1, 2, N.
Sum of all the deviations is zero.
2. Sample Mean: calculated as
3. Weighted Mean: calculated as
4. Geometric Mean: calculated as
Where there are n observations and each observation is X
i
.
5. Mean Absolute Deviation: is the average of the datas absolute deviations from the mean.
6. Population Variance: is the average of the populations squared deviations from the mean.
The population standard deviation is simply the square root of the population variance.
7. Sample Variance: is the average of the sample datas squared deviations from the sample mean.
The sample standard deviation is

8. Covariance describes the co-movement between 2 random numbers, given as :
Cov(X

9. Correlation coefficient is a unit-less number, which gives a measure of linear dependence between
two random variables. (X

13. Addition Rule
Used to Get Compound Probabilities for Union of Events: P(A OR B) = P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A B)
For Mutually Exclusive Events: P(A OR B) = P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B)
14. Sum Rule & Bayes Theorem


Out of a group of 100 patients being treated for chronic back trouble, 25% are chosen at random to
receive a new, experimental treatment as opposed to the more usual muscle relaxant-based therapy
which the remaining patients receive. Preliminary studies suggest that the probability of a cure with the
standard treatment is 0.3, while the probability of a cure from the new treatment is 0.6.
15. Discrete Probability Distributions
Probability distribution for a Binomial random variable is given by:
16. Normal Distribution Random Variable
General Normal random variable X ~ N (,

X can be standardized to a Standard Normal random variable.
Resulting variable has mean zero and variance equal to 1.

Type I and Type II Errors
Type I error occurs if the null hypothesis is rejected when it is true
Type II error occurs if the null hypothesis is not rejected when it is false
