Chapter 1
* In statistics the group we wish to study is called the population * A sample is a subset of the population which is used to gain insight about the population. Samples are used to represent a larger group, the population. * • Descriptive statistics – the collection, organization, analysis, and presentation of data. * Inferential statistics – uses descriptive statistics to estimate population parameters; an educated guess about the population based on sample data. Chapter 2

* • During the experiment a treatment is applied to the experimental group. * • The exact treatment will depend on the particular experiment. * • The treatment changes the level of the explanatory variable in the experiment. The effect of the treatment can be measured by comparing the response variable in the control and experimental groups. * Qualitative: Descriptions and Labels

* Quantitative: counts and measurements
* Discrete: Usually counts of things, restricted set of values * Continuous: Usually measurements, data can take on any value in an interval * Nominal measures offer names or labels for certain characteristics * Ordinal data represents data in an associated order.

* If the data can be ordered and the arithmetic difference is meaningful, the data is interval. * Ratio data has a meaningful zero point and the ratio of two data points is meaningful. * Quantitative data is measured on the interval or ratio scale. * Qualitative data is measured on a nominal or ordinal scale Chapter 3

* A frequency distribution is a summary technique that organizes data into classes and provides in tabular form a list of the classes along with the number of observations in each class *
*
* The cumulative relative frequency is the proportion of observations in a particular class and all preceding classes. Below is a cumulative relative frequency distribution for the heart rate data. *...

INTRODUCTION TO NORMAL DISTRIBUTIONS
The normal distribution is the most important and most widely used distribution in statistics. It is sometimes called the "bell curve," although the tonal qualities of such a bell would be less than pleasing. It is also called the "Gaussian curve" after the mathematician Karl Friedrich Gauss. As you will see in the section on the history of the normal distribution, although Gauss played an important role in its history, Abraham de Moivre first discovered the normal distribution.
Strictly speaking, it is not correct to talk about "the normal distribution" since there are many normal distributions. Normal distributions can differ in their means and in their standard deviations. Figure 1 shows three normal distributions. The green (left-most) distribution has a mean of -3 and a standard deviation of 0.5, the distribution in red (the middle distribution) has a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1, and the distribution in black (right-most) has a mean of 2 and a standard deviation of 3. These as well as all other normal distributions are symmetric with relatively more values at the center of the distribution and relatively few in the tails.

The density of the normal distribution (the height for a given value on the x axis) is shown below. The parameters μ and σ are the mean and standard deviation, respectively, and define the normal distribution. The...

A medical statistician wants to estimate the average weight loss of people who are on a new diet plan. In a preliminary study, he guesses that the standard deviation of the population of weight losses is about 10 pounds. How large a sample should he take to estimate the mean weight loss to within 2 pounds with 90% confidence? 1.645(90%)*10/√n=2 2√n=(1.645*10/2)2 n=67.6506 Sample size should be 67.65 or 68 to estimate within 2 pounds having a90%confidencelevel

...OM335 Final examstudyguide
1. (6 points) Daily demand for the ice creams at I-Scream parlor is normally distributed with a mean of 160 quarts and a standard deviation of 100 quarts. The owner has the ice cream supplied by a wholesaler who charges $2.20 per quart. The ice cream sells for $4 per quart. The wholesaler charges a $400 delivery charge independent of order size. It takes 4 days for an order to be supplied. The opportunity cost of capital to I-Scream is estimated to be 25% per year. Assume 360 days in the year.
(a) The optimal order size of each order is (in quarts):
D = 160 x 360 quarts per year, S = $400, h = 0.25 $ per year, C = $2.20, H = hC = 0.25 x 2.20 = $0.55 per quart per year
EOQ = sqrt ( ( 2 D S)/H) = sqrt ( (2 x 160 x 360 x 400)/0.55) = 9153
(b) The owner would like to ensure no stock-outs in 95% of the cycles (i.e., the service level is 95%). The safety stock the store should have is (in quarts):
SS = z σ sqrt(L) = 1.645 x 100 x sqrt(4) = 329
(c) Currently the owner orders 4000 quarts of ice cream when they have 1680 quarts on hand. Compute the total annual inventory cost including the cost of holding the safety stock.
Ordering cost = D/Q S = (160 x 360)/4000 x 400 = $5,760/year
Cycle inventory = Q/2 = 4000/2 = 2000;
safety stock = ROP – mean leadtime demand = 1680 – 160 x 4 = 1040
Total inventory = 2000 + 1040 =...
