One costs 100 units and has a 20% probability of breaking down within a year. The other costs 120 units and has a 5% breakdown probability. A breakdown costs 60 units. Ignoring the possibility of multiple breakdowns, which machine should we buy? Reading the decision tree from right to left, we see that it is cheaper to buy the 100-unit machine. In machine learning the ‘decisions’ are, in effect, the...

An appropriate statistic is the sample mean X̄ , which has distribution N(20, 9/25) under H 0 , or its standardized value which has distribution N(0, 1). If the desired significance level is 5%, the critical region, from tables of critical values for the standard normal distribution ( see appendix iv ) is Z >1.645. In terms of X̄ , the critical region is X̄ >20 + 1.645 or, equivalently, X̄ >20.99. The probability of making a Type II error is...

... variables are related. The original data may be ranks , or measurements that are converted to ranks. For example, in a flower show, six sunflower exhibits (A–F) might be given the ranks 1, 3, 2, 5, 6, and 4. If the heights of these exhibits are 2.4, 1.9, 2.2, 1.8, 1.85, and 2.0 m then we might suppose that the heights affected the judge's ranking, since on converting the heights to ranks we get a similar pattern to the judge's ranks: An attraction of using a rank correlation coefficient is that the calculations are simple. Commonly used coefficients are ...

...In computing, it became common to use the prefix ‘kilo-’ to mean 2 10 , so one kilobit was 1024 bits (not 1000 bits). This was extended to larger prefixes, so ‘mega-’ in computing is taken to be 2 20 (1 048 576) rather than 10 6 (1 000 000). However, there is a variation in usage depending on the context. In discussing memory capacities megabyte generally means 2 20 bytes, but in disk storage (and data transmission) megabyte is often taken to mean 10 6 bytes. (In some contexts, as in the capacity of a floppy disk, it has even been quoted as 1 024 000 bytes,...

Write f 0 kl = f 1 kl + f 2 kl , f j 0l = f j1l + f j2l , and f 00 l = f 10 l + f 20 l . Then Under the null hypothesis, the distribution of M is approximated by a chi-squared distribution with one degree of freedom .

A random sample of 120 seeds is sown. All germinate with 20 having white flowers, 10 having red flowers, 40 pink, and 50 blue. The question is whether these results are consistent with the hypothesis. In this case the maximum likelihood estimate of p is 0.15, so the expected frequencies are 30, 18, 36, and 36. Thus There are 4−1−1=2...
