Chapter 7: Probability Distributions

In this chapter, you'll learn:

  • How to use simulation to generate sampling distributions for common summary statistics such as the sample mean, the sample proportion, and the sum of two values from two populations
  • To describe the shape, center, and spread of the sampling distributions for common summary statistics without actually generating them
  • To use the sampling distribution to determine which results are reasonably likely and which would be considered rare
