Probability

The probability of a certain event is a number expressing the likelihood that a specific event will occur, expressed as the ratio of the number of actual occurrences to the number of possible occurrences. In mathematics, it is a measure of how often an event will happen and is the basis of statistics.

What to do when the z score is not in the z score chart?

The average z score chart lists z scores with three significant figures. For example, you can find the z score -1.81 on the chart, but not -1.812 or -1.818. In the case that you wish to look up a z score with more than three significant figures, round it to three significant figures and then use the chart. OR You can also use a calculator if you wish to get more accurate results. The link for calculator is mentioned below. ...

What is downside probability?

This is a very simple statistic to comprehend and to calculate. It takes the frequency distribution method of calculating probability. The statistic is calculated as This statistic is simple to interpret as well. What it calculates is the probability of the portfolio to get a negative return. It can be comprehended that a higher figure would mean a higher probability of fund to do give negative returns. ...

How do you plot your boat's estimated position?

There appears to be some confusion regarding DR plots and IT (Intended Track) plots as well as how they apply to an EP. A basic estimated position is based on a DR plot (time and speed only, no current, tide, leeway or other corrections applied) and the LOP (with bearing and time noted). When drawn, it is done by dropping a perpendicular from your DR position at the time of the LOP (shortest distance). The intersection of the perpendicular and the LOP...

What is the probability of having 3 girls?

33% for every girl... (quick but wrong) 2. for a given solo pregnancy, we have the b-g option, or 1/2. For two pregnancies, we have bb, bg, gb, gg. for three pregnancies, we have bbb, bbg, bgb, bgg, ggg, gbg, ggb, gbb. Of which some outcomes are equivalent in terms of numbers. (e.g. ggb, gbg, bgg) However only one of the eight outcomes gives three girls, so the answer is the probablilty is 1/8. An easier method, and necessary when the number are greater, is to...

Why is the Monty Hall paradox true?

The Monty Hall paradox is true because it is actually not a paradox, it is a case of misdirection and/or misunderstanding that probabilities do not change just because you open a door. Restating the problem: You are in a game show with Monty Hall. You have three doors to choose from. Behind one door, there is a car. Behind the other two doors, there are goats. You choose a door. Just then, Monty spices things up by opening one of the other...

Can dizygotic fraternal twins be conceived a week apart?

I think so. My twins are three days apart according to every ultrasound so far. It seems perfectly reasonable that they could be up to a week apart especially considering that is about how long strong sperms keep on working within the right environment. I am not a Dr., but my guess would be it must be possible. Take care While it is possible for non-identical (dizygotic/2-eggs) twins to be conceived apart (and by different fathers!), it's generally not the case. An...

Does an ogive best represent the shape of a distribution?

While a two-dimensional ogive or a cross-section of a three-dimensional ogive may represent the shape of a given distribution, they are only good for representing higher-likelihood (one- and two-sigma) outcomes because ogives do not have characteristic low-likelihood tails tails. For very well managed processes (better than four sigma accuracy), a custom ogive may provide a very good approximation of resulting distribution. ...
