A frequency polygon is a graphical way to visualize data given in the form of a frequency distribution table. It is similar to a histogram which is also used to visualize grouped data. We...

Cumulative Relative Frequency

Cumulative relative frequency refers to the proportion of data values that are less than or equal to a certain value. It is usually expressed in the form of a percentage. For example, suppose that in...

Left Skewed Histogram

A left skewed histogram is a histogram that attains a peak (which is the mode) towards the right side of the graph and has a "tail" towards the left side. This means that the...

Right Skewed Histogram

A right skewed histogram is a histogram that has a long tail towards the right end of the graph and has a peak towards the left. This means that the smaller values occur in...

Probability Mass Function

The probability mass function (p.m.f) for a discrete random variable is a function that allows us to calculate the probability that a random variable takes a particular value. What is a Probability Mass Function? Let ...

Pairwise Independent & Mutually Independent Events

Three or more events are said to be pairwise independent if they are independent when considered two at a time. Two events are independent if the probability of occurrence of one event does not...

n choose r(nCr) – Combination formula

The symbol nCr (pronounced n choose r) denotes the number of ways in which we can choose ‘r’ objects from a collection of ‘n’ number of objects. The combination formula is used in statistics...
