Quick question regarding probability spaces:
I am thinking the 2nd and 4th apply
My answers would be:
y>=32
1:50
Just from using R

leehuan - what would you do if InteGrand decides to take a 6 month sabbatical?

I wasn't taught the hypergeometric distribution properly so can someone walk me through how to use it? Here's my question if it helps to refer to it.
A factory produces 80 items in a batch. To test if the batch is defective, an acceptance sampling scheme is adopted: a random sample of 10 items is selected, and if 2 or more items don’t meet customer specifications, the batch is considered defective.
If there are actually 11 defective items in the batch,
1i) What is the probability that 2 sampled items are defective?
ii) What is a general formula for x sampled items being defective?
Doing this for the first time for a very very long long time. Not sure if correct.

The parameters are as follows:
• N is the total population
• K is the number of "tagged" objects (defective objects in your example)
• n is the size of our sample.
The hypergeometric distribution pmf Drongoski wrote (in terms of the parameters N, K, n) then gives the probability that our sample has exactly k "tagged" (defective) objects present, under the assumption that we are sampling without replacement. This follows from basic combinatorics.
The reason for terms like "population" and "tagged" is that one place this distribution comes up is in ecology when we tag some members of an animal population (like a fish population) and then later draw (without replacement) a random sample from the animal population and count how many are tagged. This can be used to try and estimate the total population for example (it is sometimes known as the "capture-recapture method", and you can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_and_recapture).
Any tips for catching up on stats... like any resources you use?
Thanks I am behind lol.
Can't deny it. I'm also a fair bit behind.
Been cramming a lot of the course pack tbh.
Q1. If we have a data set where the median is significantly greater than the mean, which of the following is likely to be true?
A. The data is left skewed
B. There has been an error in data input
C. Categorical data is being treated as numeric data
D. The data is right skewed

A national TV poll is run asking viewers to ring in regarding whether they think the
head of the Australian Bureau of Statistics should be sacked over the problems with the
census. 500,000 people ring in, with 83% of respondents claiming he should be sacked.
Which one of the following is correct?
(1 mark)
A. The biggest problem with this survey is that people under 18 may have responded.
B. We conclude that majority of Australians believe he should be sacked.
C. The sample size is large enough to overcome any doubts about the validity of this
sample.
D. The results are unreliable as they quite likely suffer from self-selection bias.

Id rule out D straight away in that question.
This from Wikipedia:
"In statistics, self-selection bias arises in any situation in which individuals select themselves into a group, causing a biased sample with nonprobability sampling. "

Id rule out A straight up as well, which would love me down to B or C.

Statistical validity refers to whether a statistical study is able to draw conclusions that are in agreement with statistical and scientific laws. This means if a conclusion is drawn from a given data set after experimentation, it is said to be scientifically valid if the conclusion drawn from the experiment is scientific and relies on mathematical and statistical laws.
id also refer out C, and would go for B in this question.

is there an easy way to find the probability mass function??
right now im just looking at example P(X=x) like P(X=1... etc.) and trying to find a pattern
but this is hard for tricky ones
A box contains four red and two black balls. Two balls are drawn. Let X be
the number of red balls obtained. Find fX(x)
Okay so if I haven't screwed up, P(X=0) = 1/15, P(X=1) = 4/5, P(X=2) = 2/5, and any other value of X, P = 0.
So how do I put this into a proper answer for this question?
