Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

1. Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

Simple, compound, and complementary events are different types of probabilities. Each of these probabilities are calculated in a slightly different fashion. In this lesson, we will look at some real world examples of these different forms of probability.

How to Calculate a Permutation

2. How to Calculate a Permutation

A permutation is a method used to calculate the total outcomes of a situation where order is important. In this lesson, John will use permutations to help him organize the cards in his poker hand and order a pizza.

How to Calculate the Probability of Permutations

3. How to Calculate the Probability of Permutations

In this lesson, you will learn how to calculate the probability of a permutation by analyzing a real-world example in which the order of the events does matter. We'll also review what a factorial is. We will then go over some examples for practice.

Math Combinations: Formula and Example Problems

4. Math Combinations: Formula and Example Problems

Combinations are an arrangement of objects where order does not matter. In this lesson, the coach of the Wildcats basketball team uses combinations to help his team prepare for the upcoming season.

Either/Or Probability: Overlapping and Non-Overlapping Events

5. Either/Or Probability: Overlapping and Non-Overlapping Events

Statistics is the study and interpretation of a set of data. One area of statistics is the study of probability. This lesson will describe how to determine the either/or probability of overlapping and non-overlapping events.

The Addition Rule of Probability: Definition & Examples

6. The Addition Rule of Probability: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn the differences between mutually exclusive and non-mutually exclusive events and how to find the probabilities of each using the Addition Rule of Probability.

Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

7. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

Sometimes probabilities need to be calculated when more than one event occurs. These types of compound events are called independent and dependent events. Through this lesson, we will look at some real-world examples of how to calculate these probabilities.

The Multiplication Rule of Probability: Definition & Examples

8. The Multiplication Rule of Probability: Definition & Examples

The Multiplication Rule of Probability is a concept you will use frequently when solving probability equations. In this lesson, learn the two different scenarios in which you will use the multiplication rule of probability.

What is Random Sampling? - Definition, Conditions & Measures

9. What is Random Sampling? - Definition, Conditions & Measures

Random sampling is used in many research scenarios. In this lesson, you will learn how to use random sampling and find out the benefits and risks of using random samples.

Systematic Random Samples: Definition, Formula & Advantages

10. Systematic Random Samples: Definition, Formula & Advantages

Systematic random sampling is a great way to randomly collect data on a population without the hassle of putting names in a bag or using a random number generator. In this lesson, learn all about how and when to use systematic random sampling.

Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

11. Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

By describing the data using central tendency, a researcher and reader can understand what the typical score looks like. In this lesson, we will explore in more detail these measures of central tendency and how they relate to samples and populations.

Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays

12. Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays

Every once in a while you will come across stem-and-leaf displays in statistics. These displays can be very useful in identifying all of the values in a data set while still visually representing the data.

Creating & Interpreting Histograms: Process & Examples

13. Creating & Interpreting Histograms: Process & Examples

Creating histograms can help you easily identify and interpret data. This lesson will give you several examples to better understand histograms and how to create them.

Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples

14. Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples

Box plots are an essential tool in statistical analysis. This lesson will help you create a box plot and understand its meaning. When you are finished, test your understanding with a short quiz!
