## STATISTICS encompasses all the methods and procedures used in the

collection, presentation, analysis and interpretation of data.

## DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS comprise those methods concerned with

collecting and describing a set of data so as to yield meaningful information.

## STATISTICAL INFERENCE comprises those methods concerned with the

analysis of a subset of data leading to predictions or inferences about the
entire set of data

 Population vs Sample
Population is the set of all entities and elements under study. Sample is the
subset of population.

 Parameters vs Statistics
Parameters refer to all descriptive measures or characteristics of population
while statistics refer to sample characteristics.

 Census vs Survey
Census is the process of gathering information from every element of the
population while survey is the process of gathering information from every
element of the sample.

## II. Variables and its Level of Measurement

Variable is an observable characteristics of a person or object which is capable
of taking several values or of being expressed in several different categories. It
can be either quantitative (discrete or continuous) or qualitative data.

MEASUREMENT SCALES
a. Nominal – are simply labels, names or categories. Number assignment is
used for identification purposes, no meaning can be attached to the
magnitude or size of such numbers. Examples are gender, civil status,
telephone numbers, etc..
b. Ordinal - whereas nominal scales only classify, ordinal scales do not only
classify but also order the classes. Examples are job position, military
ranks, etc..
c. Interval – quantitative but has no true zero point. Examples are IQ, room
temperature, etc..
d. Ratio – quantitative and has true zero point. Examples are number of
children, physics test scores, etc…

SUMMATION NOTATION

For a given universe, suppose we observe a variable, say X. We may denote the
first value as X1, the second as X2 and so on. In general, Xi is the observation on
variable X made on the ith individual.

Given a set of N observations or data values represented by X1, X2, …, XN, we express
their sum as

∑ 𝑋𝑖 = 𝑋1 + 𝑋2 + ⋯ + 𝑋𝑁
𝑖=1

## where Σ is the summation symbol;

i is the index of the summation; and
Xi is the summand.
1 is the lower limit
N is the upper limit

## Theorem 1. If c is a constant, then

𝑁 𝑁

∑ 𝐶𝑋𝑖 = 𝐶 ∑ 𝑋𝑖
𝑖=1 𝑖=1
Theorem 2. If c is constant, then

∑ 𝐶 = 𝑁𝐶
𝑖=1

## Theorem 3. If a and b are constants, then

𝑁 𝑁 𝑁

∑(𝑎𝑋𝑖 ± 𝑏𝑌𝑖 ) = 𝑎 ∑ 𝑋𝑖 ± 𝑏 ∑ 𝑌𝑖
𝑖=1 𝑖−1 𝑖=1

## METHODS OF DATA COLLECTION

Various methods for data gathering are available. A researcher should be able to
use the most appropriate.

1. Survey Method – questions are asked to obtain information, either through self
administered questionnaire or interview (personal, telephone or internet)

## Personal  Flexibility in obtaining  expensive

 More in-depth answers hard to control
 Can observe the  errors in interviewing
respondent’s behavior  time consuming

## Mailed  wider geographic  responses rate may be

Questionnaires distribution of low
respondents possible  hard to obtain in-
 respondents can answer depth information
at their convenience  usable mailing list
 no personal interviewer’s may be unavailable
bias  respondent not the
people doing the survey  cannot observe
 relatively inexpensive respondent’s behavior
 respondent may be more
candid if he/she can

## Phone  relatively inexpensive  unlisted telephone

Interview  fast number
 centralized control of  outdated telephone
people doing survey directory
 respondents maybe more  interview time needs
candid to be relatively short
 selected sample may
not have telephones

## 2. Observation Method – makes possible the recording of behavior but only at a

time of occurrence (e.g., observing reactions to a particular stimulus, traffic
count).

 does not rely on the respondent’s willingness to provide information
 certain types of data can be collected only by observation (e.g., behavior
patterns of which the subject is not aware of or ashamed to admit)
 the potential bias caused by the interviewing process is reduced or eliminated

 things such as awareness, beliefs, feelings and preferences cannot be observed
 the observed behavior patterns can be rare or too unpredictable thus
increasing the data collection costs and time requirements

## 3. Experimental Method – a method designed for collecting data under controlled

conditions. An experiment is an operation where there is actual human
interference with the conditions that can affect the variable under study. This is
an excellent method of collecting data for causation studies. If properly designed
and executed, experiments will reveal with a good deal of accuracy, the effect of a
change in one variable on another variable.

4. Use of Existing Studies – e.g., census, health statistics, and weather bureau
reports

Two types:
 documentary sources – published or written reports, periodicals,
unpublished documents, etc.

 field sources – researchers who have done studies on the area of interest
are asked personally or directly for information needed

## 5. Registration method – e.g., car registration, student registration, and hospital

Statistics Handouts
Page 9 of 92

## 1. Textual form – data are incorporated to a paragraph.

 This method is appropriate only if there are few numbers to be presented.
 Gives emphasis to significant figures and comparisons

 It is not desirable to include a big mass of quantitative data in a “text” or
paragraph, as the presentation becomes incomprehensible.
 Paragraphs can be tiresome to read especially if the same words are repeated
so many times

## 2. Tabular Presentation – systematic organization of data in rows and columns

 More concise than textual presentation
 Easier to understand
 Facilitates comparisons and analysis of relationship among different categories
 Presents data in greater detail than a graph

## PARTS OF A STATISTICAL TABLE:

a. Heading – consists of a table number, title and head note. The title explains
what are presented, where the data refers and when the data apply.

b. Box Head – contains the column heads which describes the data in each
column, together with the needed classifying and qualifying spanner heads.

c. Stub – these are classification or categories found at the left. It describes the
data found in the rows of the table.

## d. Field – main part of the table

e. Source Note – an exact citation of the source of data presented in the table
(should always be placed when figures are not original)

SOURCE NOTE

Guidelines:
 Title should be concise, written in telegraphic style, not in complete sentence
 Column labels should be precise.
 Categories should not overlap.
 Unit of measure must be clearly stated
 Show any relevant total, subtotals, percentages, etc..
 Indicate if the data were taken from another publication by including a source
note
 Tables should be self-explanatory, although they may be accompanied by a
paragraph that will provide an interpretation or direct attention to important
figures

## 3. Graphical Presentation- a graph or chart device for showing numerical values or

relationship in pictorial form

 main feature and implication of a body of data can be grasped at a glance
 can attract attention and hold the reader’s interest
 simplifies concepts that would otherwise have been expressed in so many words
 can readily clarify data, frequently bring out hidden facts and relationship

## Common Types of Graph

a. Line Chart – graphical presentation of data especially useful for showing trends over
a period of time.

b. Pie Chart – a circular graph that is useful in showing how a total quantity is
distributed among a group of categories. The “pieces of the pie” represent the
proportions of the total that fall into each category.

c. Bar Chart – consists of a series of rectangular bars where the length of the bar
represents the quantity or frequency for each category if the bars are arranged
horizontally. If the bars are arranged vertically, the height of the bar represents the
quantity

d. Pictorial Unit chart – a pictorial chart in which each symbol represents a definite
and uniform value

## The stem-and-leaf display is an alternative method for describing a set of data. It

presents a histogram-like picture of the data, while allowing the experimenter to retain
the actual observed values of each data point. Hence, the stem-and-leaf display is
partly tabular and partly graphical in nature.

In creating a stem-and-leaf display, we divide each observation into two parts, the
stem and the leaf. For example, we could divide the observation 244 as follows:

Stem Leaf
2 ⋮ 44

Alternatively, we could choose the point of division between the units and tens,
whereby

Stem Leaf
24 ⋮ 4

The choice of the stem and leaf coding depends on the nature of the data set.

## 1. List the stem values , in order, in a vertical column

2. Draw a vertical line to the right of the stem value
3. For each observation, record the leaf portion of that observation in the row
corresponding to the appropriate stem
4. Reorder the leaves fro lowest to highest within each stem row. Maintain uniform
spacing for the leaves so that the stem with the most number of observations has
the longest line.
5. If the number of leaves appearing in each row is too large, divide the stem into
two groups, the first corresponding to leaves beginning with digits 0 through 4
and the second corresponding to leaves beginning with digits 0 through 4 and the
second corresponding to leaves beginning with digits 5 through 9. This
subdivision can be increased to five groups if necessary.
6. Provide a key to your stem-and-leaf coding so that the reader can recreate the

Note: The stem-and –leaf display should include a reminder indicating the units of the
data value.

Example:

## Unit = 0.1 1 2 represents 1.2

Unit = 1 1 2 represents 12
Unit = 10 1 2 represents 120

## Lesson #2 – Frequency Distribution Table

Date Set. Given below is the distribution of statistics test scores of 50 students (Perfect score is 70 and
passing score is 60% of it )

5 20 21 24 27 30 35 38 45 55
8 20 21 25 28 30 35 39 47 58
10 20 23 25 29 32 36 40 48 59
18 20 23 25 29 35 36 40 49 60
19 21 23 26 30 35 37 40 50 70

## Steps in the construction of frequency distribution:

1. Determine the range R of the distribution.

## R = highest observed value – lowest observed value

= 70 - 5
= 65
2. Determine the number of classes, k, desired. By the square root rule.

## K= N , where N = total number of observations

= √50 = 7.07
K≈7
 the number of classes is to be rounded off to the nearest WHOLE NUMBER.

## 3. Calculate the class size, c.

65
First find: c’ = R/K = = 9.28 ≈ 9
7

The class size is to have the same precision as the raw data and should take the
value nearest to c’. Hence, c’ = 9

4. Enumerate the classes or categories based on the quantities calculated in steps 1-3
bearing in mind that:

a) the lowest class must include the lowest observed value and the highest class,
the highest observed value. (The lowest value of the data is the lower class limit of
the first class).
b) That each observation will go into one and only class (that none of the values can
fall into possible gaps between successive classes and that the classes do not
overlap).

##  Successive lower class limits may be obtained by adding c’ to the preceding

lower class limit. And so with the upper limits.
Statistics Handouts
Page 15 of 92

## I. Tally the observations to determine the class frequency or the number of

observations falling into each class.

Classes Frequency
5 - 13 3
14 - 22 9
23 - 31 15
32 - 40 13
41 - 49 4
50 - 58 3
59 - 67 2
68 - 76 1

## 1. True Class Boundaries (TCB) – remove discontinuity between classes and

consider the true range of values.

## (Lower TCB) LTCB = LL – 0.5 (unit)

(Upper TCB) UTCB = UL + 0.5(unit)

## example. 1st class: LTCB = 5 - 0.5(1) = 4.5

UTCB = 13 + 0.5(1) = 13.5

Note:
If data Unit of precision
is a whole number 1
has 1 decimal place 0.1
has 2 decimal places 0.01

2. Class Mark (CM) = the center of a class. It is the midpoint of the class interval
where observations in a class tend to cluster about.

( 𝐿𝑇𝐶𝐵+𝑈𝑇𝐶𝐵) 𝐿𝐿+𝑈𝐿
CM = 𝑜𝑟

## NUMERICAL DESCRIPTIVE MEASURES

I. Measure of Location – value within the range of the data which describes its
location or position relative to the entire set of data. The more common measures
are measures of central tendency, percentile, decile and quartile.

## A. Measure of Central Tendency – describes the “center” of the data. It is a single

value about which the observations tend to cluster. The common measures
are mean, median and mode.

## 1. Mean (𝑥̅ /𝜇) – sum of  interval statistic  variables are in at least

the observations  calculated average interval scale
divided by the  value is determined  value of each score is
number of by every case in the desired
observations totaled distribution  values are considerably
 affected by extreme concentrated or closed
values to each other

## 2. Median (Md) – middle  ordinal statistic  ordinal interpretation

value of an array  rank or position is needed
average  middle score is desired
 not affected by  we want to avoid
extreme values influence of extreme
values

## 3. Mode (Mo) –  nominal statistics  nominal interpretation

observations which  inspection average is needed
occurs most  not unique; have  quick approximation of
frequently in the data more than one mode central tendency
set  most “popular” score desired
 unaffected by
extreme values
 represents the
majority
Statistics Handouts
Page 20 of 92

B. Percentile (Pi) – divides the data set into 100 equal parts, each part having one
percent of all the data values. For example, if patrick received a rating of 90th
percentile in the National Secondary Achievement Test, this means that 90%
of the students who took the test had scores lower than Patrick’s.

C. Decile (Di) – divides a data set into ten equal parts, each part having ten
percent of all data values. The first decile is the 10 th percentile, the second
decile is the 20th pe4rcentile, and so on, up to the tenth decile which is the
100th percentile.

D. Quartile (Qi) – divides a data set into four equal parts, each part having
twenty-five percent of all data values. The first quartile is the 25th percentile,
the second is the 50th percentile, the third is the 75th percentile, and the
fourth quartile is the 100th percentile.

II. Measure of Dispersion – describes the extent to which the data are dispersed.
The more commonly used measures are:

A. Range (R)
- not a stable measure of variation because it can fluctuate greatly
with a change in just a single score, either the highest or the
lowest
- easiest to compute but the LEAST SATISFACTORY because its
value is dependent only upon the two extremes

B. Variance (s2/𝜎 2 )
- considers the position of each observation relative to the mean of
the set; denoted by 2

## C. Standard Deviation (s/)

- best measure of variation
- important as a measure of heterogeneity or unevenness within a
set of observations
- used when comparing two or more sets of data having the same
units of measurement

D. Coefficient of Variation ( CV )
- used to compare the variability of 2 or more sets of data even
when the observations are expressed in different units of
measurement.
Statistics Handouts

III. Measure of Skewness (SK) – describes the extent of departure of the distribution
of the data from symmetry.

## SK = 0, Symmetric Distribution  the median is the score pt. which bisects

the total area. Half of the area would fall
to the left and half to the right
 mode is the score pt. with the highest
frequency, the pt. on the x-axis
corresponds to the tallest pt. of the curve
 mean is the score pt on the x-axis that
corresponds to the pt. of balance

SK > 0, Positively Skewed  bump on the left indicates that the mode
corresponds to a low value
 tail extending to the right means that the
mean, which is sensitive to each score
value, will be pulled in the direction of
the extreme scores and will have a high
value
 median which is unaffected by extreme
values will have a value between the
mode and the mean

## SK < 0, Negatively Skewed

 mean will have a lower numerical value
than the median because the extremely
low scores will pull the mean to the left
 bump usually occurs at the right
indicating that the mode has a high
numerical value
 median will still be in the middle

## IV. Measure of Kurtosis – measures the degree of peakedness of a data of

distribution, denoted by k. If the distribution of the data is bell-shaped, k=3. If
the shape of the distribution is relatively peaked, k>3. If the shape is relatively
flat, k<3.

K= 3
A distribution that is peaked in the same way as any
normal distribution, not just the standard normal
distribution, is said to be mesokurtic. The peak of a
mesokurtic distribution is neither high nor low,
rather it is considered to be a baseline for the two
other classifications.

## K> 3 A leptokurtic distribution is one that has kurtosis

greater than a mesokurtic distribution. Leptokurtic
distributions are identified by peaks that are thin
and tall. The tails of these distributions, to both the
right and the left, are thick and heavy. Leptokurtic
distributions are named by the prefix "lepto"
meaning "skinny."

## K<3 The third classification for kurtosis is platykurtic.

Platykurtic distributions are those that have a peak
lower than a mesokurtic distribution. Platykurtic
distributions are characterized by a certain flatness
to the peak, and have slender tails. The name of
these types of distributions come from the meaning
of the prefix "platy" meaning "broad."

THE BOXPLOT

Definition. The boxplot is a graph that is very useful for displaying the following
features of the data:
 Location
 Symmetry
 extremes
 outliers

## Steps in Constructing Boxplot

1. Construct a rectangle with one end of the first quartile and the other end at the
third quartile
2. Put a vertical line across the interior of the rectangle at the median
3. Compute for the interquartile range (IQR), lower fence (FL) and the upper fence
(FU) given by:
IQR = Q3 – Q1
FL = Q1 – 1.5 IQR
FU = Q3 – 1.5 IQR
4. Locate the smallest value contained in the interval [FL , Q1]. Draw a line from this
value to Q1.
5. Locate the largest value contained in the interval [Q3 , FU]. Draw a line from this
value to Q3.
6. Values falling outside the fences are considered outliers and are usually denoted
by “x”

Remarks:

1. The height of the rectangle is arbitrary and has no specific meaning. If several
boxplots appear together, however, the height is sometimes made proportional to
the different sample sizes.
2. If the outlying observation is less than Q1 – 3 IQR or greater than Q3 + 3 IQR it is
identified with a circle at their actual location. Such an observation is called a far
outlier.

More Problems:

1. Suppose a teacher assigns the following weights to the various course requirements:

Assignment 15%
Project 25%
Midterms 20%
Finals 40%

The maximum score a student may obtain for each component is 100. Sheila obtains
marks of 83 for assignment, 72 for project, 41 for midterms and 49 for the finals. Find her
mean mark for the score.

2. Two of the quality criteria in processing butter cookies are the weight and color development
in the final stages of oven browning. Individual pieces of cookies are scanned by a
spectrophotometer calibrated to reflect yellow-brown light. The readout is expressed in per
cent of a standard yellow-brown reference plate and a value of 41 is considered optimal
(golden-yellow). The cookies were also weighed in grams at this stage. The means and
standard deviations of 30 sample cookies are presented below.

Mean sd
Color 41.1 10
Weight 17.7 3.2

## Lesson # 4 – Weighted Means

Weighted Means

 Weighted Mean is a statistical measure obtained when data is gathered from a survey questionnaire
using the Likert Scale

 A Likert scale is a psychometric scale commonly used in questionnaires and is the most widely
used scale in survey research. When responding to a Likert questionnaire item, respondents specify
their level of agreement to a statement.1 A Likert item is simply a statement the respondent is asked
to evaluate according to any kind of subjective or objective criteria.

 Generally, the level of agreement or disagreement is measured. Often five ordered response levels
are used, although many psychometricians advocate using seven or nine levels. A recent empirical
study2 found that a 5- or 7- point scale may produce slightly higher mean scores relative to the
highest possible attainable score, compared to those produced from a 10-point scale, and this
difference was statistically significant.

##  Strategies: 5- Very Effective, 4- Effective,3-Moderately effective/Undecided,…

 Practices: 5- Highly Observed/Always/Fully Aware, 4- Observed/Sometimes/Aware,…
 Traits/Attitudes: 5-Very Evident, 4-Somewhat Evident, 3-Undecided, 2-Somewhat inevident, 1-Not

Generation of Waste

The extent of performance of SWM practices of students and faculty on the area of generation of

wastes is given in Table 5. The results show the respondents’ mean, based on the nine (9) indicators

used, ranged from 1.4 to 2.08 or from “ very low” to “low” ratings. The respondents gave an overall mean

that resulted to “very low” to the following indicators: “provides information through campaigns or

seminars about SWM (1.67)”, “introduces strategies on how to apply the 4R's of Solid Waste Management

(1.68)”,, “rejects products which are harmful to the environment such as foam, Styrofoam, CFC aerosols,

oil-based paints, pesticides, insecticides, plastics, wood preservatives, glues and adhesives (1.52)” ,

“encourages the use of refillable ink (1.47)”, “allows the use of old notebooks (1.56) “ and “repairs or

disposes defective computers (1.46)”. The “very low” also implied that almost none of the respondents

## observe the mentioned practices.

On the indicators stating that “provides campaign to patronize the use of reusable and recyclable

materials (2.08)”, “encourages the use of unused side of old papers or recycles its own paper (1.86)”,

“encourages or requires the use of refillable materials (3.2)”,and “encourages to reuse envelopes, boxes,

packaging materials and folders (2.04)” had an overall mean of “low”. Only 25% of the respondents

## observe the mentioned indicators.

The students and faculty gave an overall weighted mean that resulted to “very low”. In totality,

the cumulative mean score resulted to 1.7. The result implied that almost none of the indicators were

## being observed under the generation component of SWM.

Survey results reveal that there was a need for intensive information campaign about SWM and

that the University had yet to implement strategies on how to apply the 4R’s. Such an outcome presents

an opportunity to promote waste-saving measures among the student and teaching population in the

## AdeNU in line with the future promotion of the 4R’s.

Lesson # 5 – Sampling

## SAMPLE SIZE DETERMINATION

N
Slovin’s Formula: n
1  Ne 2

## Where n = sample size

N = population size
e = margin of error (usually at 5%)

## A researcher would want to make a socio-economic survey of a school with a

population of 5000 students. If he allows a margin of error of 5%, how many students
must he take into sample?

5000
n =
1  5000(0.05) 2

5000
=

5000
=

5000
=
13.5

= 370.37 ~ 370

## Important: Samples should be as large as a researcher can obtain with a reasonable

expenditure of time and energy. A recommended minimum number of subjects is 100
for a descriptive study, 50 for a correlational, and 30 in each group for experimental
and causal- comparative study.

## B. Stratified Sampling – the population of N units is first divided into

subpopulations called strata. Then a simple random sample is drawn from
each stratum, the selection being made independently in different strata.

## Procedure: Given a population N = 365, the researcher grouped the

respondents according to gender where there are 219 females and 146 males.

Using stratified sampling, how many respondents will be obtained from each

strata?

## N = 365 , use Slovins formula to get the sample size n

## A. Convenience - chooses sample at the researcher’s convenience

example. To find out how students feel about food service in the student
union at an East Coast university, the manager stands outside the main
door of the cafeteria one Monday morning and interviews the first 50
students who walk out of the cafeteria
B. Purposive - use their judgement to select a sample that they
believe will provide the data they need
example. A graduate student wants to know how retired people aged 65
and over feel about their “golden years”. He has ben told by one of his
professors, an expert on aging and the aged population, that the local
Association of Retired Workers is a representative cross section of retired
people age 65 and over. He decides to interview a sample of 50 people who
are members of the association to get their views.
C. Quota - sets a sample size then chooses the respondents
without setting criteria. The researcher proceeds to fill the prescribed
quota. The researcher is left to his own convenience or preference.

D. Snowball

## REASONS FOR USING NON-RANDOM SAMPLING

a. Some might use this technique because they just want to get a “feel” of the
market before launching or producing a certain product.

## c. The validity of the sample is based on the soundness of the judgement of

whoever make the choice.
Example. One would naturally use judgement instead of randomness
in the choice of people who will work for a company.

## Definition. FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE OF COUNTING. If one event can occur in m

different ways, and if, after it has happened in one of these ways, a second event can
occur in n different ways, then both events can occur, in the order stated, in m x n
different ways.

Examples.

1. If there are eight doors providing access to a building, in how many ways can a
person enter the building by one door and leave by a different door?

2. How many even three-digit numbers can be formed fro the digits 1, 2,5,6 and 9 if
each digit can be used only once?

3. How many positive integers of three different digits can be formed from the integers
1,2 3, 4 and 5.

4. How many different arrangements, each consisting of five different letters, can be
formed from the letters of the word “PERSONAL” if each arrangement is to begin and
end with a vowel?

5. How many different arrangements of five distinct books each can be made on a shelf
with space for five books?

6. Suppose that there are 3 math books and 3 physics books, how many different
arrangement of the six books can be made on a shelf if books on the same subject
are to be kept together?

## 7. How many ways can a 10-question true-false exam be answered?

Statistics Handouts
Page 53 of 92

## Definition. PERMUTATION (nPr). Let S be a set containing n elements and suppose r is

a positive integer such that r < n. Then a permutation of r elements of s is an
arrangement in a definite order, without repetitions of r elements of s.

## Theorem 1. The number of permutations of n elements taken r at a tiem is given by

either of the following formulas:
a. nPr = n(n-1)(n-2) … (n-r+1)
b. nPr = n! / (n-r)!

## Special case: nPn = n!

Examples:
1. A bus has six vacant seats. If three additional passengers enter the bus, in how
many different ways can they be seated?

2. In how many ways can 3 boys and 3 girls be seated in a row containing six seats if
a. a person may sit in any seat
b. boys and girls must sit in alternate seats?

Theorem 2. If we are given n elements, of which exactly m1 are of one kind, exactly m2
are alike of a second kind, …, and exactly mk are alike of a kth kind, and if n=m1 +
m2 + .. + mk, then the number of distinguishable permutations that can be made of the
n elements taking them all at one time is

𝑛!
𝑚1 ! 𝑚2 ! 𝑚3 ! … 𝑚𝑘 !

Examples:
1. Determine the number of different nine-digit numerals that can be formed from the
digits 6,6,6,5,5,5,4,4 and 3.

## 2. How many permutations can be formed from the word TENNESSEE?

Statistics Handouts
Page 54 of 92

## Definition. COMBINATION (nCr). Let s be a set containing n elements, and suppose r is

a positive integer such that r< n. then a combination of r elements of s is containing r
distinct elements.

nCr = nPr / r!
= n! / (n-r)!r!

## Theorem 4. nCr = nCn-r

Examples:

1. A football conference consists of 10 teams. If each team plays every other team, how
many conference games are played?

2. A student has twelve posters to pin up on the walls of her room, but there is space
for only 7. In how many ways can she choose the posters to be pinned up?

Lesson #7 – Probability

PROBABILITY

##  SAMPLE SPACE is the set of all possible outcome of a given experiment.

 A subset of the sample space of an experiment is called an EVENT associated with
the experiment

## Definition. PROBABILITY OF AN EVENT. If S is the sample space of an experiment and

E is an event associated with the experiment, the probability of E, denoted by P(E), is
defined by

P(E) = . n(E) . where n(E) are the numbers of elements in E and S respectively.
n(S)

Furthermore, if P(E)= 0 then the event will never happen or it is an “impossible” event.
If P(E) = 1, the event is certain to happen or it is a “sure” event.

Examples:
1. Determine the probability of each of the following events:
a. Obtaining a 4 on a throw of a single die
b. Obtaining a head on a toss of a coin

2.
1 2 3 4 5 6
a. a. If 2 dice are thrown, what 1 (1,1) (1,2) (1,3) (1,4) (1,5) (1,6)
is the probability of obtaining 2 (2,1) (2,2) (2,3) (2,4) (2,5) (2,6)
a sum of 8? a sum of 3? 3 (3,1) (3,2) (3,3) (3,4) (3,5) (3,6)
4 (4,1) (4,2) (4,3) (4,4) (4,5) (4,6)
5 (5,1) (5,2) (5,3) (5,4) (5,5) (5,6)
6 (6,1) (6,2) (6,3) (6,4) (6,5) (6,6)

## 3. Determine the probability of each of the following events

a. Drawing a heart from a deck of 52 playing cards
b. Drawing 4 spades in succession from a deck of 52 playing cards if after each
card is drawn it is not replaced in a deck

4. If a French, Spanish, Russian and English books are placed at random on a shelf
with a space for 4 books, what is the probability that the Russian and English books
will be next to each other?
Statistics Handouts
Page 57 of 92

## Definition. CONJUNCTION PROBABILITY. This type of probability is associated with

events happening together, one event and another event occurring at the same time.
Events, however, may be independent or dependent

## Case 1. P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

When the occurrence of one event does not influence the probability of the
occurrence of the other event, these events are said to be independent.

## Example. At birth the probability that US female will survive to age 65 is

approximately 7/10. The probability that a male will survive to age 65 is
approximately 3/5. What is the probability that both male and female will
be alive at age 65?

What is the probability that only the male will be alive at age 65?

What is the probability that at least one of the two will be alive at age 65?

## Case 2. P(A and B)= P(A) x P(B/A)

When the occurrence of one event is conditioned by the other event, these
events are said to be conditional.

## Example. Suppose a box contains 30 fuses 5 of which are defective. What is

the probability of drawing at random two defective fuses in succession if
the first fuse that has been drawn is not returned before making the
second draw?
Statistics Handouts
Page 58 of 92

## Definition. DISJUNCTION PROBABILITY. This type of probability is associated with

several events that happen either separately or simultaneously. Disjunction probability
is concerned with “either or” relationship.

## Case 3. P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B

When the events do not have common sample points, they are said to be
mutually exclusive.

Example. What is the probability that in a single toss of a two dice, the sum
will be 4 or 7?

## Case 4. P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(AB)

There are also cases of joint events which are not mutually exclusive
because there are some elements common to both events.

## Example. What is the probability of getting a sum of 8 or a sum greater

than 7 in a throw of two dice?

Example. Take a math class with 52 students, 27 of whom are males and
the rest are females. A total of 21 of the males and 15 of the females got a
grade above 90. What is the probability that if a student is chosen at
random, this student has either grade of above 90 or is a male?

## PROBABILITIES INVOLVING QUALITATIVE DATA IN CONTINGENCY TABLE

When the data are presented in the form of frequencies and are classified
according to qualitative rather than quantitative categories, they are called
qualitative data in contingency tables.

Illustration:

Vegetarian Status
Vegetarian Non Total
Gender Vegetarian
20 23 43
Male
22 25 47
Female
42 48 90
Total

## 1. To find the probability of a single event from qualitative data, simply

divide the subtotal of the desired event by the grand total.

## 2. To find the conjunction probabilities of two independent events from

qualitative data, divide the observed frequency where the two events
intersect by the grand total.

## P(A and B) = observed freq. of the two events intersection .

Grand total
Example. The probability that a person is female and a vegetarian

## 3. To find the probabilities of two dependent events from qualitative data,

divide the observed frequency where the two events intersect by the
subtotal of the event which is used as a condition

## P(A and B) = observed freq. of the two events intersection .

Subtotal of the conditional events
Example. The probability of getting a male at random provided that he is a

PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS

## Concept of a Random Variable

Definition. A function whose value is a real number determined by each element n the
sample space is called a random variable.

Remark. We shall use an uppercase letter, say X, to denote a random variable and its
corresponding lowercase letter, x in this case, for one of its value.

## Example (Experiment #1): An experiment consists of tossing a coin 3 times and

observing the result. The possible outcome and the values of the random variables X
and Y, where X is the number of heads and Y is the number of heads minus the
number of tails are

Sample Points X Y
HHH 3 3
HHT 2 1
HTH 2 1
HTT 1 -1
THH 2 1
THT 1 -1
TTH 1 -1
TTT 0 -3

## Definition. If a sample space contains a finite number of possibilities or an unending

sequence with as many elements as there are whole numbers, it is called a
discrete sample space.

Definition. A random variable defines over a discrete sample space is called a discrete
random variable

## Definition. If a sample space contains an infinite number of possibilities equal to the

number of points on a line segment, it is called a continuous sample space.

## Definition. A random variable defines over a continuous sample space is called a

continuous random variable.
Statistics Handouts
Page 64 of 92

## Discrete Probability Distributions

Definition. A table or formula listing all possible values that a discrete random
variable can take on, along with the associated probabilities, is called a
discrete probability distribution.

Remark. The probabilities associated with all possible values of a discrete random
variable must sum to 1.

Examples. For Experiment #1, the discrete probability distributions of the random
variables X and Y are

x 0 1 2 3
P(X = x) 1/8 3/8 3/8 1/8

Y -3 -1 1 3
P(Y = y) 1/8 3/8 3/8 1/8

## Continuous Probability Distribution

Definition. The function with values f(x) is called a probability density function for the
continuous random variable X, if

 *the total area under its curve and above the horizontal axis is equal to 1; and
 *the area under the curve between any two ordinates x=a and x=b gives the
probability that X lies between a and b.

Remarks:

## 1. A continuous random variable has a probability of zero of assuming exactly any of

its values, that is, if X is a continuous random variable, then P(X=x) = 0 for all real
numbers x.
2. The probability random variable X that can assume values between 0 and 2 has a
density function given by

## 0.5 𝑓𝑜𝑟 0 < 𝑥 < 2

f(x) = {
0 𝑜𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑤𝑖𝑠𝑒

Expected Values

## Definition. Let X be a discrete random variable with probability distribution

x x1 x2 … xn
P(X = x) f(X1) f(X2) … f(Xn)

Examples:

## 1. Find the mean of the random variables X and Y of Experiment No. 1

x 0 1 2 3
P(X = x) 1/8 3/8 3/8 1/8

## E(X) = (0)(1/8) + (1)(3/8) + (2)(3/8) + (3)(1/8) = 12/8 or 1.5

Y -3 -1 1 3
P(Y = y) 1/8 3/8 3/8 1/8

## E(Y) = (-3)(1/8) + (-1)(3/8) + (1)(3/8) + (3)(1/8) = 0

## Definition. Let X be a discrete random variable with probability distribution

x x1 x2 … xn
P(X = x) f(X1) f(X2) … f(Xn)

The variance of X is
𝑛

𝑖=1

Example:

E(X) = 1.5

## = ( 0 – 1.5)2 (1/8) + ( 1 – 1.5)2 (3/8) + ( 2 – 1.5)2 (3/8) + ( 3 – 1.5)2 (1/8)

= 0.75

Example. A used car dealer finds that in any day, the probability of selling no car is
0.4, one car is 0.2, two cars is 0.15, 3 cars is 0.10, 4 cars is 0.08, five cars is 0.06 and
six cars is 0.01. Let g(X) = 500 + 1500X represent the salesman’s daily earnings, where
X is the number of cars sold. Find the salesman’s expected daily earnings.

## The normal distribution is represented by a normal curve. A normal curve is bell-

shaped figure, has the following six properties:
1. It is symmetrical about X .
2. The mean is equal to the median, which is also equal to mode.
3. The tail or ends are asymptotic relative to the horizontal line
4. The total area under the normal curve is equal to 1 or 100%
5. The normal curve area may be subdivided into at least three standard scores
each to the left and to the right of the vertical axis.
6. Along the horizontal line, the distance from one integral standard score to the
next integral standard score is measured by the standard deviation.

## AREA UNDER THE NORMAL CURVE

In making use of the properties of the normal curve to solve certain types of
statistical problems, one must first learn how to find areas under the normal curve.

The first step in finding areas under the normal curve is to convert the normal
curve of any given variable into a standardized normal curve by using the formula:

X X
Z
S

## where Z = standard score

X = mean
S = Standard deviation
X = given value of a particular variable

WORDED PROBLEMS:

1. Given a normal distribution with mean 350 and standard deviation s=40, find the
probability that x assumes a value greater than 362.

Lesson # 9 – Estimation

ESTIMATION

- refers to any process by which sample information is used to predict or estimate the
numerical value of some population measure.

## - The formula, function or procedure used in estimating a population parameter is

called an estimator. The value obtained with the use of the estimator is the
estimate.

- Two types of estimators: point estimator and interval estimator. A point estimator
yields a numerical value of the estimate. An interval estimate gives a range or band
of values within which the value of the parameter is estimated to lie.

##  INTERVAL ESTIMATION OF THE POPULATION MEAN

An interval estimate of ( or any parameter) incorporates a measure of the
confidence in the reliability of the range or interval of values within which the
parameter is estimated to lie. Thus, an interval estimate is also called a confidence
estimate, and its limits, confidence limits.

##  A HYPOTHESIS is a statement, which aims to explain facts about the real

world. A test of hypothesis is a two-way decision problem. It is a procedure to
substantiate or invalidate a claim which is stated as null hypothesis

## Definition. A NULL HYPOTHESIS (Ho) is the hypothesis that we hope to accept

or reject; must always express the idea of non significance of difference
An ALTERNATIVE HYPOTHESIS (Ha). The rejection of Ho is the
acceptance of this hypothesis.

## Reject Ho Type I error Correct decision

Accept Ho Correct decision Type II error

Type I error (  error) – when we reject the null hypothesis when in fact the
null hypothesis is true.

Type II error (  error) – when we accept the null hypthesis when in fact the
null hypothesis is false.

##  ONE-TAILED AND TWO-TAILED TEST

Definition. When the rejection region located at only one extreme of the range
of values for the test statistics, the test is ONE-TAILED. If Ha is a statement of
non-equality represented by the sign  , then the hypothesis is non-
directional, thus we have a two-tailed test.

the net weights of a random sample of 10 cans are 253, 248,
252,245,247,249,251,250,247 and 248 grams, can it be concluded that the average
net weight of the cans is less than the advertised amount? Use  = 0.01 and assume
that the net weight of this brand of powdered milk is normally distributed.

2. In a time and motion study, it was found that the average time required by workers

minutes. Can it be concluded that the special training speeds up the operation? Use
 = 0.05

3. The manager of an appliance store, after noting that the average daily sales was only
12 units, decided to adopt a new marketing strategy. Daily sales under this strategy
were recorded for 90 days after which period the average was found to be 15 units
with a standard deviation of 4 units. Does this indicate that the new marketing
strategy increased the daily sales? Employ  = 0.01

4. The daily wages in a particular industry are normally distributed with a mean of

2. Some statistics students complain that pocket calculators give other students
advantage during statistics examination. To check this contention, a simple
random sample of 45 students were randomly assigned to two groups, 23 to
use calculators and 22 to perform calculations by hands. The students then
took a statistics examination that required a modest amount of arithmetic.
The results are shown below:

With Calculator 85 86 89 84 82 83 90 91 86 90 87 87 92 85 86 89 88

## Chi-Square Test of Independence

4. It is believed that people with high blood pressure need to watch their weight.
A random sample of 300 subjects was classified according to their weight and
blood pressure. At the 5% level of significance, is there sufficient evidence to
conclude that a person’s weight is related to his blood pressure?

Blood Pressure
Weight High Normal Low

Overweight 40 34 18
Normal 36 77 27
Underweight 16 33 19

## a. Ho: Weight is independent with blood pressure or weight is unaffected by

blood pressure or the two variables weight and blood pressure are
independent.

## Ha: Weight is dependent with blood pressure or weight is affected by blood

pressure or the two variables weight and blood pressure are dependent.

b. Decision rule: Reject Ho if X2-computed > critical value, otherwise accept Ho.

## d. Computation: X2-computed = 12.75

Critical value = 9.49

## f. Conclusion: At 5% level of significance, there is evidence to say that weight

is affected by blood pressure. For overweight persons, most of them
(approximately 40% of the actual population) will have higher blood pressure. For
normal weight person, they are most likely to have normal blood pressure. Those
who are underweight will also most likely to have normal blood pressure.

## Lesson # 11 - TWO-FACTOR ANOVA

Example 1. A research study was conducted to examine the impact of eating a high
protein breakfast on adolescent’s performance during a physical education physical
fitness test. Half of the subjects received a high protein breakfast and half were given
a low protein breakfast. All of the adolescents, both male and female, were given a
fitness test with high scores representing better performance. Test scores are
recorded below.

Males Females
High Protein Low Protein High Protein Low Protein
10 5 5 3
7 4 4 4
9 7 6 5
6 4 3 1
8 5 2 2

## Statistical test results:

within (gender) *20.00 4.49 8.53
among (interaction betwn 2.22 4.49 8.53
protein level and gender)

5% 1%

## Ho : There is no difference on the performance between the two protein levels

There is no difference on the performance between the two gender
There is no interaction between protein levels and gender

Interpretation:

## At 5% level of significance it can be concluded that there is significant difference

on the performance for both protein level and gender. There was no significant
interaction effect. Based on this data, it appears that a higher protein diet results in a
better fitness test scores. Additionally, young men seem to have a significantly higher
fitness test score than women.
