1. Probability A Brief Look

2. A Few Terms • Probability represents a standardized measure of chance, and quantifies uncertainty. • Let S = sample space which is the set of all possible outcomes. • An event is a set of possible outcomes that is of interest. • If A is an event outcome, then P(A) is the probability that event outcome A occurs.

3. Sample Space, A’s and P(A)’s • What is the chance that it will rain today? • The number of maintenance calls for an old photocopier is twice that for the new photocopier. What is the chance that the next call will be regarding an old photocopier? • If I pull a card out of a pack of 52 cards, what is the chance it’s a spade?

4. Union and Intersection of Events • The intersection of events A and B refers to the probability that both event A and event B occur. • The union of events A and B refers to the probability that event A occurs or event B occurs or both events, A & B, occur. and either/or

5. Mutually Exclusive Events • Mutually exclusive events can not occur at the same time. S S Mutually Exclusive Events Not Mutually Exclusive Events

6. Roommate profile Distribution Frequency - Counts Relative Frequency - Probability University of South Carolina; Slide 6

7. What is the probability that a randomly chosen roommate will snore or like to party?

8. The Union of Two Events • If events A & B intersect, you have to subtract out the “double count”. • If events A & B do not intersect (are mutually exclusive), there is no “double count”.

9. Given that a randomly chosen roommate snores, what is the probability that he/she likes to party? University of South Carolina; Slide 11

10. Conditional Probability • The conditional probability of B, given that A has occurred: Given University of South Carolina; Slide 12

11. Probability of Intersection • Solving the conditional probability formula for the probability of the intersection of A and B:

12. When , we say that Events B and A are Independent. The basic idea underlying independence is that information about event A provides no new information about event B. So “given event A has occurred”, doesn’t change our knowledge about the probability of event B occurring.

13. There are 10 light bulbs in a bag, 2 are burned out. • If we randomly choose one and test it, what is the probability that it is burned out? • If we set that bulb aside and randomly choose a second bulb, what is the probability that the second bulb is burned out?

14. Near Independence • EX: Car company ABC manufactured 2,000,000 cars in 2009; 1,500,000 of the cars had anti-lock brakes. • If we randomly choose 1 car, what is the probability that it will have anti-lock brakes? • If we randomly choose another car, not returning the first, what is the probability that it will have anti-lock brakes?

15. Independence • Sampling with replacement makes individual selections independent from one another. • Sampling without replacement from a very large population makes individual selection almost independent from one another

16. Probability of Intersection • Probability that both events A and B occur: • If A and B are independent, then the probability that both occur:

17. Test for Independence • If , then A and B are independent events. • If A and B are not independent events, they are said to be dependent events. University of South Carolina; Slide 19

18. Are snoring or not and partying or not independent of one another? University of South Carolina; Slide 20

19. Arrange the counts so that snoring and partying are independent of one another. University of South Carolina; Slide 21

20. Complementary Events • The complement of an event is every outcome not included in the event, but still part of the sample space. • The complement of event A is denoted A. • Event A is not event A. • The complement of an event is every outcome not included in the event, but still part of the sample space. • The complement of event A is denoted A. • Event A is not event A. S: A A University of South Carolina; Slide 22

21. ????????????????? All mutually exclusive events are complementary. • True • False University of South Carolina; Slide 23

22. Probability Rules • 0 < P(A) < 1 • Sum of all possible mutually exclusive outcomes is 1. • Probability of A or B: • Probability of A or B when A, B are mutually exclusive: University of South Carolina; Slide 24

23. Probability Rules Continued • Probability of B given A: • Probability of A and B: • Probability of A and B when A, B are independent: University of South Carolina; Slide 25

24. Probability Rules Continued • If A and A are compliments: or University of South Carolina; Slide 26

25. So Let’s Apply the Rules • We purchase 30% of our parts from Vendor A. Vendor A’s defective rate is 5%. What is the probability that a randomly chosen part is defective and from Vendor A? University of South Carolina; Slide 27

26. ???????????? • We are manufacturing widgets. 50% are red, 30% are white and 20% are blue. What is the probability that a randomly chosen widget will not be white? University of South Carolina; Slide 28

27. ???????????? • When a computer goes down, there is a 75% chance that it is due to overload and a 15% chance that it is due to a software problem. There is an 85% chance that it is due to an overload or a software problem. What is the probability that both of these problems are at fault? University of South Carolina; Slide 29

28. ???????????? • It has been found that 80% of all accidents at foundries involve human error and 40% involve equipment malfunction. 35% involve both problems. If an accident involves an equipment malfunction, what is the probability that there was also human error? University of South Carolina; Slide 30

29. ????????????????? Four electrical components are connected in series. The reliability (probability the component operates) of each component is 0.90. If the components are independent of one another, what is the probability that the circuit works when the switch is thrown? A B C D University of South Carolina; Slide 31

30. An automobile manufacturer gives a 5-year/75,000-mile warranty on its drive train. Historically, 7% of the manufacturer’s automobiles have required service under this warranty. Consider a random sample of 15 cars. • If we assume the cars are independent of one another, what is the probability that no cars in the sample require service under the warranty? • What is the probability that at least one car in the sample requires service? University of South Carolina; Slide 32

31. Consider the following electrical circuit: A B C • The probability on the components is their reliability (probability that they will operate when the switch is thrown). Components are independent of one another. • What is the probability that the circuit willnot operate when the switch is thrown? 0.95 0.95 0.95 University of South Carolina; Slide 33

32. Consider the electrical circuit below. Probabilities on the components are reliabilities and all components are independent. What is the probability that the circuit will work when the switch is thrown? A 0.90 C 0.95 B 0.90 University of South Carolina; Slide 34

33. The number of maintenance calls for an old photocopier is twice that for the new photocopier. • Two maintenance calls for an old machine followed by a call for a new machine. • Two maintenance calls for new machines followed by a call for an old machine. • Three maintenance calls in a row for an old machine. • Three maintenance calls in a row for a new machine Outcomes Old Machine New Machine Probability 0.67 0.33 Which of the following series of events would most cause you to question the validity of the above probability model?

35. Multiplication of Choices • If an operation can be performed in n1 ways, and if for each of these a second operation can be performed in n2 ways, and for each of the first two a third operation can be performed in n3 ways, and so forth, then the sequence of k operations can be performed in n1·n2·…· nk ways. University of South Carolina; Slide 37

36. Multiplication of Choices • There are 5 processes needed to manufacture the side panel for a car: clean, press, cut, paint, polish.
