Statistical Concepts:
• Probability
• Binomial Probability Distribution

Calculating Binomial Probabilities

 Open a new MINITAB worksheet.

 We are interested in a binomial experiment with 10 trials. First, we will make the probability of a success ¼. Use MINITAB to calculate the probabilities for this distribution. In column C1 enter the word ‘success’ as the variable name (in the shaded cell above row 1. Now in that same column, enter the numbers zero through ten to represent all possibilities for the number of successes. These numbers will end up in rows 1 through 11 in that first column. In column C2 enter the words ‘one fourth’ as the variable name. Pull up Calc > Probability Distributions > Binomial and select the radio button that corresponds to Probability. Enter 10 for the Number of trials: ...view middle of the document...

In column C4 enter the words ‘three fourths’ as the variable name. Again, use similar steps to that given above in order to calculate the probabilities for this column. The only difference is in Event probability: use 0.75.

Plotting the Binomial Probabilities

1. Create plots for the three binomial distributions above. Select Graph > Scatter Plot and Simple then for graph 1 set Y equal to ‘one fourth’ and X to ‘success’ by clicking on the variable name and using the “select” button below the list of variables. Do this two more times and for graph 2 set Y equal to ‘one half’ and X to ‘success’, and for graph 3 set Y equal to ‘three fourths’ and X to ‘success’. Paste those three scatter plots below.

Calculating Descriptive Statistics

 Open the class survey results that were entered into the MINITAB worksheet.

2. Calculate descriptive statistics for the variable where students flipped a coin 10 times. Pull up Stat > Basic Statistics > Display Descriptive Statistics and set Variables: to the coin. The output will show up in your Session Window. Type the mean and the standard deviation here.

Mean: 4.600

Standard deviation: 1.429

Short Answer Writing Assignment – Both the calculated binomial probabilities and the descriptive statistics from the class database will be used to answer the following questions.

3. List the probability value for each possibility in the binomial experiment that was calculated in MINITAB with the probability of a success being ½. (Complete sentence not necessary)

P(x=0) 0.0009766 P(x=6) 0.205078
P(x=1) 0.0097656 P(x=7) 0.117188
P(x=2) 0.0439453 P(x=8) 0.0439453
P(x=3) 0.117188 P(x=9) 0.0097656
P(x=4) 0.205078 P(x=10) 0.0009766
P(x=5) 0.246094

4. Give the probability for the following based on the MINITAB calculations with the probability of a success being ½. (Complete sentence not necessary)

P(x≥1) 0.999023 P(x1) 0.989258 P(x≤4) 0.376953
