Outline of Lecture 13
Calculator -> Statistical tables -> Binomial
gives a dialog box where you can enter n, pi, and k
for which stataquest will find P(X=k), P(X<=k), and P(X>=k).
Calculator -> Statistical tables -> Normal
gives a dialog box where you can enter z
for which
stataquest will find P(Z<=z), P(Z>=z), and 2P(Z<=|z|). Note what
stataquest calls this last probability
Calculator -> Inverse statistical tables -> Normal
gives a dialog box where you can enter p
for which
stataquest will find a z so that P(Z<=z)=p, that is, the 100pth percentile
of the Z distribution.
