We can represent this income constraint (or budget constraint ) with the following expression: Equation (3) P B Q B + P W Q W ≤ I <span>This expression simply constrains Warren to spend, in total, no more than his income. At this stage of our analysis, we are assuming a one-period model. In effect, then, Warren has no reason not to spend all of his income. The weak inequality becomes a strict equality, as shown in Equation 4, because there would be no reason for Warren to save any of his income if there is “no tomorrow.” Equation (4) P B Q B + P W Q W = I From this equation, we see that if Warren were to spend all of his income only on bread, he could buy I/P B slices of bread.

Countries are scrambling for a way to make the extraction safe and profitable. <span>Accessing the power of this flammable ice has been difficult, for two reasons. First, these reserves are often distributed over a large area rather than concentrated in one spot as oil or natural gas reserves often are. The bigger problem, however, is that, true to their moniker as flammable ice, methane hydrates are unstable and potentially explosive. Drilling into the seafloor could destabilize the methane ice crystals and cause explosions, spewing vast troves of methane into the atmosphere, where it is a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide (CO2). What next? Any exploitation of the reserves must be done with the utmost care because of environmental concerns. The potential threat is that methane can escape, which would have seri

The elements of a sample space should be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive.

ematical meaning. So we create a set that we usually denote by capital omega. That set is called the sample space and is the set of all possible outcomes of our experiment. <span>The elements of that set should have certain properties. Namely, the elements should be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive. What does that mean? Mutually exclusive means that, if at the end of the experiment, I tell you that this outcome happened, then it shoul

Look out for the words "given that" or "you are told that," which will help you know that the probability is conditional. In the absence of such information, the probability will be unconditional.

oil price, P(B), is 0.4. The probability of an increase in airfare given an increase in oil price, P(A|B), is 0.3. The joint probability of an increase in both oil price and airfare, P(AB), is 0.3 x 0.4 = 0.12. Hint: <span>Look out for the words "given that" or "you are told that," which will help you know that the probability is conditional. In the absence of such information, the probability will be unconditional. The letter after the | is the event that we know has definitely occurred, whereas the letter before the | is the event whose probability we are trying to calculate. <span>

When two events are not independent, they must be dependent: the occurrence of one is related to the probability of the occurrence of the other.

vent of getting heads on the first flip does not affect the probability of getting heads on the second flip. Therefore, the event of getting heads on the second flip is independent of the event of getting heads on the first flip. <span>When two events are not independent, they must be dependent: the occurrence of one is related to the probability of the occurrence of the other. If we are trying to forecast one event, information about a dependent event will be useful but information about an independent event will not be useful. Examp

An easier way to interpret expected value is as follows: If a number of such concerts were held, the organizers can expect to achieve a profit of $14,000 for each concert. So expected values actually make more sense when viewed over the long run.

fit that will be made the remaining 50% of the time more than offsets this and creates an overall expected profit. However, with a one-off concert, there is a major risk involved, particularly in the event of unfavorable weather. <span>An easier way to interpret expected value is as follows: If a number of such concerts were held, the organizers can expect to achieve a profit of $14,000 for each concert. So expected values actually make more sense when viewed over the long run. The variance of a random variable is the expected value (the probability-weighted average) of squared deviations from the random variable's expected value. &

A stem-and-leaf graph, also called a stemplot, is a way to represent the distribution of numeric data. It was invented by John Tukey, a mathematician, and is a quick way to picture data for numbers that are greater than 0.

A stem-and-leaf graph, also called a stemplot, is a way to represent the distribution of numeric data. It was invented by John Tukey, a mathematician, and is a quick way to picture data for numbers that are greater than 0. I'll explain using an example. Suppose you have the following set of numbers (they might represent the number of home runs hit by a major league baseball player during

The normal distribution has the following characteristics: Its mean and median are equal. It is completely described by two parameters—its mean and variance. Roughly 68 percent of its observations lie between plus and minus one standard deviat
