PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS INTRODUCTI ON
Probability of occurrence of A is given by
Probability is the measure of degree of certainity or uncertainity of occurrence of an event. The set of all possible outcomes is called sample space of that experiment and is denoted by S. Example : Sample space of tossing a coin : S = {H, T} Hhead, Ttail. Sample space of tossing 2 coins : S = {(H, H), (H, T), (T, H), (T, T)} Sample space of throwing a die : S {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} Probability of an event is denoted by P(E). 0 £ P(E) £ 1 Probability of sample space, P(S) = 1.
æAö ÷ P(Bi ) i=1 è i ø P(A/Bi)Probability of occurrence of A when Bi has already happened.
Notations Used in Probability · Probability of happening of events A or B : P(A È B) or P(A + B). · Probability of happening of events A and B : P(A Ç B) or P(AB). Mutually exclusive events Event whose occurrences is independent of occurrence of another events is said to be mutually exclusive. They don’t occur simultaneously i.e. A Ç B = f E.g. : tossing a coin, throwing a die. Equally likely events If an event cannot happen in performance to other such events is said to be equally likely. Independent events Two events are said to be independent if happening or failure of one does not effect the happening or failure of the others. Exhaustive events Set of events which includes all possible events is said to be exhaustive. Addition law of probability P(A) and P(B) are probabilities of two events A and B, then P(A È B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A Ç B) For mutually exclusive events P(A Ç B) = 0. Law of total probability If B1, B2,...... Bn are mutually exclusive events and an event A occurs only if Bi occurs, then :

Sample Problem 1. There are two bags A and B having 2 white and 1 black ball in bag A and 1 white and 3 black balls in bag B. A bag is chosen at random and two balls are drawn. The balls were one white and one black ball. What is the probability that it is from bag B ? 1 Probability of choosing a bag = P(A) = P(B) = 2 Let X be probability of choosing 2 balls.

For this curve mean, median and mode coincide It is symmetrical about yaxis with equal on both sides. Binomial Distribution Binomial distribution deals with trials of repetitive nature in which occurrence of an event or not is of interest. In a series of trials, the probability of r success in n traits is given by nC pr qn–r r where, pprobability of success qprobability of failure Tips : This is important for GATE exam.
