    Statistics: Sampling Distribution Problem with Dice

    Roll a dice five times. Record the results in Sample 1. Repeat the experiment for Sample 2, 3, and 4. In a live classroom setting, actual survey data is used. In this knowledge check online environment, please use the following data: Sample 1: 2,2,3,4,5 Sample 2: 4,1,5,5,6 Sample 3: 1,5,5,3,4...

    Expectation and variance of top 10% of any normal distribution

    Short: With the standard curve (i.e. mean=0, std dev=1), does the top 10% form its own normal distribution with the expectation about 1.74 and the standard deviation about .40? Long: I wrote a little program that takes the numbers 0.005,.015,.025,...,0.995, which is 100 numbers. I take...

    Probability based question

    Consider two independent events, A and B, where the P(A) is 0.45 and the probability that A does not occur or B occurs is 0.70. Determine the probability that event B occurs. Any help is greatly appreciated :)

    Multivariate Probability Distribution

    Question: f(x, y) = 1, where x,y are between 0 and 1 OR = 0, elsewhere a) What is P(X - Y > 0.5)? b) What is P(XY < 0.5)? Honestly I have no idea how to go about this question. Can anybody point out how to get it started?

    Experimental Design - Distribution Question

    Hi, I'm studying a module called Experimental Design. I don't think my question is too difficult but I can't get my head around it. Background: Clinical trial conducted on Mars comparing two treatments A and B on frostbite. Allocation is simple randomisation, Pr(allocation to A)=1/2. So I have...

    Analysis of K-fold Cross Validation

    Hello, I'm in a machine learning class right now and having difficulty with some problems. I'm pretty much trying to figure out the correlation between model coefficient estimates over different folds during cross-validation. The assumption of the model is Y = β + e such that E(e) = 0...

    What is the standard deviation of the measurements coverted into Celsius?

    A temperature measurment F in degrees Fahrenheit can be converted to a measurement C in degrees Celsius using the formula C=(5/9) (F-32). Suppose 10 measurments in Fahreheit have a mean of 86 degrees and a standard debiation of 3.4 degrees. What is the standard deviation of the measurements...

    Help with post hoc test

    Hi, I'm doing a study into the factors which cause dogs to develop noise phobias. One of my factors is the breed of dog. I have seven groups of dog breeds and have a number of dogs which do and do not have noise phobia for each of these seven groups. I carried out a chi squared test (because...

    fisher information comparison?

    The aim is to estimate the probability of success $θ ∈ (0, 1)$ of a certain event. You have two options to sample: a) $X_1, X_2, \ldots , X_n$ from $\operatorname{Bernoulli} (θ)$ distribution $f_{X_1} (x, \theta) = \theta^x(1 - \theta)^{1-x}, x = {0, 1}.;$ b) $Y_1, Y_2, \ldots , Y_n$ from a...

    Combined likelihood and max likelihood estimator of two normal distributions

    Hi guys ive been attempting a bank of revision questions in preparation for exams and I cannot seem to work out this question. For part a am I correct in assuming you take the log likelihoods of each distribution and add them together to combine the likelihoods? For part b I cannot seem where...

    probability problem

    n balls are randomly distributed among three boxes. Find the probability of (a) exactly two empty boxes; (b) exactly one empty box (c) no empty boxes. so the answers are (a) 1/3^(n-1) (b) [(2^n)-2]/3^(n-1) (c) [3^(n-1)-2^n+1]/3^(n-1) I don't understand why the denominator is 3^(n-1) and why...

    Reporting results p > .05 justified?

    Hi all, Recently I did a field study where I investigated recycling behaviour in the office. We did a baseline and post-intervention measurement of the respons rate (i.e. how much of the total amount of a certain type of waste ends up in the right bin?). For 2 x 2 weeks we collected and...

    Can someone please help me interpret a cross correlation plot?

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me by explaining in simple terms what this cross-correlation plot is showing? The two time series I am showing are: X = Changes in charcoal particles in sediment throughout time. Y = Changes in spruce pollen percentage throughout time. I am...

    Need help reverse-engineering the logic

    Hello, Not a typical question... I have these samples of data, and I know they produce results below. I know percentages are calculated based on comparison of stimulus to marker. Marker is the base level. Stimulus is the actual experiment. However, I can't reproduce the mathematics behind it...

    A certain experiment is to be performed until a successful result is obtained.

    Im not sure what distribution method to use here. Over all though im not sure what to do here.. A certain experiment is to be performed until a successful result is obtained. The trials are independent and the cost of performing each trial is 25,000 dollars; however, if a failure results, it...
