Definitions

**• Probability: A measure of the likelihood that an
**

event in the future will happen; it can only

assume a value between 0 and 1, inclusive.

• Experiment: The observation of some activity

or the act of taking some measurement.

• Outcome: A particular result of an experiment.

• Event: A collection of one or more outcomes of

an experiment.

Approaches to Probability

**• Classical probability is based on the
**

assumption that the outcomes of an

experiment are equally likely.

• Using this classical viewpoint,

Number of favorable outcomes

Probability of an event =

Total number of possible outcomes

.5-6 Mutually Exclusive Events • Mutually Exclusive Events: The occurrence of any one event means that none of the others can occur at the same time. • In EXAMPLE 1. Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. the four possible outcomes are mutually exclusive.

5-7 Collectively Exhaustive Events • Collectively exhaustive: At least one of the events must occur when an experiment is conducted. the four possible outcomes are collectively exhaustive.25 + . . In other words. Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. • In EXAMPLE 1.25 + . 25).25 + . the sum of probabilities = 1 (.

5-8 Relative Frequency Concept • The probability of an event happening in the long run is determined by observing what fraction of the time like events happened in the past: Number of times event occured in the past Probability of event = Total number of observations Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. .

5-9 EXAMPLE 2 • Throughout her career Professor Jones has awarded 186 A’s out of the 1200 students she has taught. What is the probability that a student in her section this semester will receive an A? • By applying the relative frequency concept.155 Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. the probability of an A= 186/1200=. .

Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. • Examples of subjective probability are estimating the probability the Washington Redskins will win the Super Bowl next year and estimating the probability of an earthquake in Los Angeles this year. .5-10 Subjective Probability • Subjective probability: The likelihood (probability) of a particular event happening that is assigned by an individual based on whatever information is available.

• Rules of addition: If two events A and B are mutually exclusive.5-11 Basic Rules of Probability • If events are mutually exclusive. then the occurrence of any one of the events precludes any of the other events from occurring. the special rule of addition states that the probability of A or B occurring equals the sum of their respective probabilities: P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. .

Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. • If B is the event that a flight arrives late.075 =. then P(A) = 100/1000 = . • The probability that a flight is either early or late is P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) = .175. . then P(B) = 75/1000 = .

. P(A) + P(~A) = 1 OR P(A) = 1-P(~A).5-14 The Complement Rule • The complement rule is used to determine the probability of an event occurring by subtracting the probability of the event not occurring from 1. Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. If P(A) is the probability of event A and P(~A) is the complement of A.

5-15 The Complement Rule continued • A Venn diagram illustrating the complement rule would appear as: A Irwin/McGraw-Hill ~A © The McGraw-Hill Companies. .

Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. • If D is the event that a flight is canceled. then P(C) = 800/1000 = . then P(D) = 25/1000 = . • If C is the event that a flight arrives on time.8.5-16 EXAMPLE 4 • Recall EXAMPLE 3. • Use the complement rule to show that the probability of an early (A) or a late (B) flight is .175.

5-23 Joint Probability • Joint Probability is a probability that measures the likelihood that two or more events will happen concurrently. . Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. An example would be the event that a student has both a stereo and TV in his or her dorm room.

Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. • The special rule is written: P(A and B) = P(A)*P(B).5-24 Special Rule of Multiplication • The special rule of multiplication requires that two events A and B are independent. • Two events A and B are independent if the occurrence of one has no effect on the probability of the occurrence of the other.

5-28 General Multiplication Rule • The general rule of multiplication is used to find the joint probability that two events will occur. the joint probability that both events will happen is found by multiplying the probability that event A will happen by the conditional probability of B given that A has occurred. . Irwin/McGraw-Hill © The McGraw-Hill Companies. as it states: for two events A and B.
