Are mu and sigma examples of parameters or statistics?


Why aren't there any negative z values in the normal
distribution table?
True or False: When using the cumulative binomial tables,
the probability of less than 8 will involve looking up the
value for 7.
What does the symbol 'capital sigma' mean?
True or False: A confidence interval is calculated by mu plus
or minus the z score times the standard deviation.
What would a residual value of 0 mean?
A variable is defined as T is distributed binomially with n =
20 and p = 0.3. What is the variance?
I take the mean away from each of my values. I then square
these results and add them up. Next I divide by 'n minus
one'. What have I found?
True or False: In the normal distribution tables, with a
positive z value, I need to find 'greater than z'. This means
I'll need to do one minus the value in the table.
Which average uses all of the data?

In the normal distribution tables, when I look up a value for


z is the tabulated number for greater than z or less than z?
True or False: When calculating a PMCC, it is quite common
to get scores of 1 or -1.
What is x bar the symbol for?
What is the value of 8C3?
What word describes using regression to predict a value
within your range of x values?
True or False: If G and H are mutually exclusive, the
probability of G union H is equal to the probability of G plus
the probability of H.
In a normal distribution, the standard deviation divided by
the square root of the sample size is sometimes called
what?
What is the formula for calculating a z score?

A variable is defined as X is distributed binomially with n =


8 and p = 0.2. What is the mean?
Which distribution is 'bell shaped'?
10 components are defective. I pick out 2 of them. What is
the chance they are both defective?
A PMCC value of r equals -0.09 suggests what?
True or False: A residual is calculated by y hat minus y.
I calculate the PMCC between x (height) and y (armspan)
and obtain r = 1.8. Am I likely to be correct?
True or False: A 95% confidence interval involves looking up
97.5 in the tables.
In binomial distribution, does the phrase "at most 12" mean
you are including 12?

The outcome of event S does not affect the outcome of


event T. What word do we use to describe this?
All my values are multiplied by 4. What is the effect on the
mean?
All of my values are increased by 10. What is the effect on
the standard deviation?
What is the probability that a 90% confidence interval for
mu does not contain mu?
True or False: variables x and y have a PMCC of 0.9. This
means changing x causes a change in y.
True or False: Squaring the variance gives you the standard
deviation.
For each trial in a Binomial distribution, how many
outcomes are there?
In regression, which is more reliable: Interpolation or
Extrapolation?
I'm counting cars. I see 5 red, 8 blue and 12 grey. What is

and "Getting a King" mutually exclusive?
