Call it a “success” if a seven appears. Then the probability of success is 1/6, so X has the binomial distribution with parameters n ϭ 5 and p ϭ 1/6. If you calculate the probabilities: Pr1X ϭ i2 ϭ 1 i 5 nϪi 5! i! 0001 Also, if you toss a coin n times, and X is the number of heads that appear, then X has the binomial distribution with p ϭ 12: n Pr1X ϭ i2 ϭ £ ≥ 2Ϫn i BINOMIAL THEOREM The binomial theorem tells how to expand the expression (a ϩ b)n. Some examples of the powers of binomials are as follows: (a ϩ b)0 ϭ 1 (a ϩ b)1 ϭ a ϩ b (a ϩ b)2 ϭ a2 ϩ 2ab ϩ b2 (a ϩ b)3 ϭ a3 ϩ 3a2b ϩ 3ab2 ϩ b3 (a ϩ b)4 ϭ a4 ϩ 4a3b ϩ 6a2b2 ϩ 4ab3 ϩ b4 (a ϩ b)5 ϭ a5 ϩ 5a4b ϩ 10a3b2 ϩ 10a2b3 ϩ 5ab4 ϩ b5 Some patterns are apparent.

The number of degrees of freedom depends on the number of observations. If the computed value of the test statistic is too large, the null hypothesis is rejected. ) CHORD A chord is a line segment that connects two points on a curve. ) CIRCLE A circle is the set of points in a plane that are all a fixed distance from a given point. The given point is known as the center. The distance from the center to a point on the circle is called the radius (symbolized by r). The diameter is the farthest distance across the circle; it is Figure 17 43 CIRCLE equal to twice the radius.

Area is measured in square units, such as square meters or square miles. See the Appendix for some common figures. The area of any polygon can be found by breaking the polygon up into many triangles. The areas of curved figures can often be found by the process of integration. ) ARGUMENT (1) The argument of a function is the independent variable that is put into the function. In the expression sin x, x is the argument of the sine function. (2) In logic an argument is a sequence of sentences (called premises) that lead to a resulting sentence (called the conclusion).
