Probability Density Functions

Length: 12 minutesAuthor: JasonComplexity: Standard

Learn how to find the simple probabilities when given the density function f(x). The requirements of these functions are covered as well.

Uniform Distributions (Preview)

Length: 15 minutesAuthor: JasonComplexity: Easy

Uniform distributions may seem simple, but they can be a challenge when you’re missing some of the expected ‘given’ information. Let me walk you through some very typical exam questions.

Question #1 and #2

Length: 60 minutesAuthor: Jason

There are three terms that will go together for almost all Chapter 8 questions: "normal distribution", "mean", and "standard deviation". With the combination of these three, your professor can ask you a multitude of questions. I cover some of the most common types here.

Question #4

Length: 13 minutesAuthor: Jason

Making sure that the units for the mean and standard deviation are the same is essential. In this question I'll show how to perform the proper conversions needed to accomplish this.

Question #5

Length: 7 minutesAuthor: Jason

While Chapter 8 is characterized as handling individual outcomes of continuous variables, the use of proportions can confuse things. I solve a question here that focuses on both individuals and proportions of populations in order to explain how they work.
