# Math 160: Study Guide - Chapter 6&7

- You are given a Venn diagram and asked to identify the number in an event.
- Normal probability. Look at problems 7.6.53, 55, 59, 63
- You are given portions of a joint probability distribution and enough
information to complete the table.
- You are given a joint probability distribution. Use it to find eight probabilities.
Look at 6.5.1 - 6.5.16.
- Decision Analysis problem. A payoff table is given. Compute the opportunistic
loss table. Find the payoff or loss under the expected value, maximax, maximin,
and minimax criterions.
- Statistics problem. Given a set of data, find the mean, median, range,
and sample standard deviation.
- Binomial problem. Use the calculator program to find binomial probabilities.
Also find the mean of the binomial distribution.
- A bag contains different types of bills. Find the probability of a randomly
selected bill being of a particular kind. Find the probability of the second
bill being of a particular kind if you replace the first, don't replace the
first but know what it was, and don't replace the first and don't know what
it was.
- Find the probability of poker hands. The problem has been modified
by removing some of the cards from the deck, so be careful. Look at problems
6.3.63 - 6.3.70.
Show the setup and find the answer. You may use the hypergeometric program
to find the probabilities for you.
- Bayesian problem. Create a joint probability distribution from the
information given. Then find some probabilities. Some of the probabilities
are marginals,
some are joint, some are conditional. You need to be able to figure out
which is which by reading the problem. Look at problems 6.6.43 - 6.6.51.
- Finish a series of a game. Create a tree diagram, find the probability
that the series goes until a certain number of games, find the probability
each team wins. Look at problem 6.5.42.

## Notes:

- Problems 1 - 8 must be worked individually.
- Problems 9 - 11 may be worked in groups of up to three people.
- You must turn in the first portion of the exam before getting into
groups.
- You will want to work through the first part of the test as quickly
as possible, the group portion will be long.
