- Find a hypergeometric probability. Look at problems 6.101 - 6.106*.
- Find a Poisson probability. The formula is given on the exam. Look at problems 6.93 -
- Find a multinomial probability. Look at problems 6.87 - 6.91*
- Identify each pair of events as independent or dependent. Three parts. Look at problem
- Identify which are binomial distributions or can be reduced to binomial distributions. Five
parts. Look at problem 6.63*.
- True-False. Four parts. Look at the Chapter tests at the end of chapters 4, 5, and 6*.
- Supply the term being defined. You should know the following terms: (4) Combination,
Permutation; (5) Complement of an event, Conditional probability, Dependent events,
Event, Independent Events, Mutually exclusive events, Probability, Sample space; (6)
Binomial experiment, Expected value, Hypergeometric distribution, Probability
distribution, Random variable.
- Identify the distribution which should be used. Four parts. Your choices are binomial,
multinomial, poisson, and hypergeometric. Look at the introductory paragraph for each
