Example text

Thus for an unbiased coin, the probability of the ratio of Heads (or Tails) to the total number of trials differing from 1/2 by greater than a specified amount approaches zero as a limit. We conventionally express this fact by the statement that the sample probability converges stochastically to 1/2. The law of large numbers has frequently (and erroneously) been cited as the guarantor of an eventual Head–Tail balance. Actually, in colloquial form, the law proclaims that the difference between the number of Heads and the number of Tails thrown may be expected to increase indefinitely with an increasing number of trials, although by decreasing proportions.

As an illustration of the hypergeometric distribution, we compute the probability that a Bridge hand of 13 cards consists of exactly 5 Spades, 4 Hearts, 3 Diamonds, and 1 Club. According to Eq. 0054 52 13 since the order of the cards within the Bridge hand is irrelevant. Another distribution of consequence in practical applications of probability theory is the binomial distribution. If an event has two alternative results, A1 and A2, so that P(A1) ϩ P(A2) ϭ 1, and the probability of occurrence for an individual trial is constant, the number of occurrences r of the result A1 obtained over n independent trials is a discrete random variable, which may assume any of the possible values 0, 1, 2, …, n.

And km Յ nm elements of the mth kind. Specifically, it can be shown that Pk1 k 2, , km ϭ n1 n2 n3 k1 k2 k3 n r nm km n ϭ n1 ϩ n2 ϩ r ϭ k1 ϩ k2 ϩ ϩ nm ϩ km (2-10) Equation 2-10 represents the generalized hypergeometric distribution, the probability distribution for sampling without replacement from a finite population. It should be noted that in the limit (for arbitrarily large populations) sampling with or without replacement leads to the same results. As an illustration of the hypergeometric distribution, we compute the probability that a Bridge hand of 13 cards consists of exactly 5 Spades, 4 Hearts, 3 Diamonds, and 1 Club.
