I believe you mean to say, equally probable. By stating they are separate events, I assume that they are independent and that there is a single unique outcome to each ev…ent that can be identified. Ok, then the chance of each event or outcome is 1/10. (MORE)

Probability tells you the chance that something will happen. For example: There are 3 red tiles, 5 green tiles and 2 pink tiles in a bag. What is the probability of picking a …red tile? First you find out how many red tiles there are. There are 3 red tiles. Then, you add up all the tiles. Altogether there are 10 tiles. So, there is a 3/10 probability that you will pick a red tile.

Advantages and disadvantages of probability sampling: Advantages: Since it is done at random, the whole process is unbiased. This is good to use in smaller populations, of c…ourse it doesn't 100% protect from bias (depending on the question). But this option is a quicker way of achieving information. Disadvantages: As i said before, depending on your question it cannot prevent from bias. Also, if you are sampling information from a large population this will take too much time and patience. There is also no guarantee that what these people say, represents what another group of people believe. Non-probability sampling: Advantages: This is more accurate because you are targeting a specific group, therefore your answers will be similar to what the rest of the population (of this group) will answer. Disadvantages: This is more biased, because the individuals chosen are not at random. They also might not represent what another population thinks (MORE)

11 * * * * * No, on two counts. The sample space is the possible outcomes of the experiment, not the NUMBER of possible outcomes. And, as far as this experiment is concerned,… there is no way to distinguish between the two occurrences of b and i. So there are, in fact, only 9 possible outcomes. Two of these outcomes have a higher probability but that is a different matter. The sample space is {p, r , o , b, a, i, l, t, y} a set of cardinality 9. (MORE)

The short answer is "random sample," but that, unfortunately, is neither specific nor complete. It is not specific because there are forms of random sampling where selection p…robabilities are not constant. It is not complete because there are many different ways to conduct random sampling with equal selection probabilities. "Simple random sampling" occurs when you can perform a process that, for all practical purposes, behaves like writing down the identifier of each population member on a piece of paper, putting all the pieces into a box, mixing them thoroughly, and pulling out a few of them one by one (without replacing them in the box). Nowadays we use a computer to do this job, because it's faster and more reliable (it is notoriously difficult to mix pieces of paper perfectly randomly). The computer needs a complete list of all the population members: this is called a sampling frame. Here is an example of random sampling that is not simple but still selects every population member with equal probability. Suppose you want to sample half the students in a classroom of 30. Ask them to line up. Flip a fair coin: if it's heads, pick the first, third, ..., 29th in line. If tails, pick the second, fourth, ..., 30th. Any individual student has a 50% chance of being part of the sample, so each student has an equal probability of being included. However, if you lined up the students boy-girl-boy-girl, etc., the samples themselves wouldn't look very random: they will either be mostly boys or mostly girls. It's still random though, because it's determined by the flip of a coin. The example highlights a subtle but important property of a random sample: in many cases, you want the selection of population members to be independent. This means the probability of selecting one member is not affected by which other members are selected. In simple random sampling, independence holds; in the second example (a form of gridded sampling), there is complete dependence: no student can be chosen along with either of their neighbors in line, for instance. Simple random sampling is ideal for many purposes but often cannot be carried out in practice because it is not feasible (you might not be able to construct a sampling frame) or costs too much. Often, more complicated procedures, such as hierarchical sampling, are carried out to overcome these limitations. (An example of hierarchical sampling is when an epidemiologist selects a city at random, then selects households at random within the city, then selects children at random within each household to study. Doing it this way can require much less travel than selecting children at random from all over the state.) These procedures might or might not select population members with equal probability. Usually the selection is not independent, either. When the probabilities are unequal, they can be figured out and used as weights in statistical analysis of the data. Results can also be adjusted for lack of independence. A good, readable, non-technical introduction to sampling and simple random samples is the textbook Statistics by Freedman, Pisani, and Purves. Any edition is fine. Steven Thompson's book Sampling discusses dozens of different sampling procedures and explains the theory behind each one. (MORE)

A probability sampling method is any method of sampling that utilizes some form of random selection. See: http://www.socialresearchmethods.net/kb/sampprob.php … The simple random sample is an assumption when the chi-square distribution is used as the sampling distribution of the calculated variance (s^2). The second assumption is that the particular variable is normally distributed. It may not be in the sample, but it is assumed that the variable is normally distributed in the population. For a very good discussion of the chi-square test, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearson%27s_chi-square_test (MORE)

Designer clothes can be expensive. Depending on the designer, item, and season, a single pair of sandals can cost more than $2,000. For the frugal or those who just don't have… the money to spend so lavishly, it can seem that high fashion designs are out of reach. Fortunately though, New York sample sales offer those with lower budgets the opportunity to pick up high-quality fashion items for lower prices.A sample sale is a special sale held by a designer or a store in which certain fashion items are marked down up to 90 percent from the original price. Some of these events are quite hush-hush, and to get into a few, customers must be on a list of accepted people. Since it is a sample sale, there are only limited options available for the items. Additionally, all sales are final, which means that customers need to check out the items in depth before making their purchase.Many sample sales are advertised by word of mouth, while others are advertised by social media. Less advertised sample sales typically lead to better deals, according to "How to Shop the Sample Sale." Ideally, one should sign up for fashion newsletters and favorite designers' updates to receive information about when their fashion items will be at a sample sale.Sample sales started for a couple different reasons. The first was because the designers and stores needed a way to sell garments that were used in photo shoots or other advertising venues, as well as to reduce inventory. The second was because fashion editors and consultants were expected to dress the part, but did not have budgets sufficient to accommodate such designs. According to "Sample Sale Queen," these fashion editors and consultants were the ones who came up with the idea of hosting these sales, and it turned out to be a boon to the rest of the fashion world as well.Arriving early to a sample sale is essential. Sales go fast, and the best items typically disappear within the first fifteen minutes. It is important for shoppers to prepare for the shopping day. Often times, multiple sample sales occur within the same day. It's important to be dressed for movement, which means ditching the heels and going with flats or tennis shoes. Shoppers should also make sure that they have clear address information and directions for the places they are going. Many sample sales take place in warehouses or other hard-to-find locations. In most cases, these events do not have signs directing shoppers to the proper course. Knowing where you are going will help you get there before the best items are gone.Many people don't have money to put down on high-fashion items. This does not mean, however, that they cannot enjoy some of the beautiful items that quality fashion has to offer. One of the best ways to get discounts on fashion items is to shop sample sales. These items are typically marked down significantly, sometimes as much as 90 percent.All sales are final, which means that customers need to check out the items in depth before making their purchase.

Getting the most out of a sample sale requires some work. Sample sales are fun options for people who want to pick up designer clothes at incredibly low prices. Prices can be …as low as 90 percent off their original mark. However, it is important not to get carried away in the moment. It is just as easy to spend more than one can afford at a sale as it is at a regular event. These tips will help shoppers get the most out of a designer sample sale.While most sample sales are not heavily advertised, if you are "on the list" or obtain advance notice, you can often learn what will be featured at one. Some stores will also disclose the contents. Before going to the sale, shoppers should take the time to research list prices, typical selling prices, and other outlet venues that might offer an item at an even better deal. Just because a sticker says something is 75 percent off does not mean that this sale price is the best deal you can find. In addition to this, you should try to find out the number of items that will be available, if possible. Sometimes the store or personnel may not disclose this information, but learning the quantity can help you determine how early you need to arrive at a sale.All sales are final unless otherwise stated expressly. The old saying "buyer beware" applies just as much here as at a used car lot. Remember that while minor tears and missing buttons are easily fixed, stains and the like can severely diminish an item's value. The same applies if the garment does not fit, or if it shrinks.A number of designer sample sales are advertised by word-of-mouth, while others are advertised by social media. Typically, less advertised sample sales lead to better deals. For some of the better sales, it is a good idea to contact acquaintances within the fashion community. If you do not know anyone like that, then it is possible to contact a personal relations representative and ask how to be put on what may be referred to as the Sample Sale List. Otherwise, you will have to rely on newsletters from fashion stores and their favorite designers to receive information.Arriving early to a sample sale is essential. These sales go fast. You can expect the best items to be gone within a short time of opening. The actual time varies depending on the size of the location and the amount of merchandise available. Items are not restocked, which means that once they are gone, they are gone for good.Getting the most out of a sample sale starts with researching the available merchandise. It is also important to get on the "list" so you one can be informed about sales ahead of time, rather than only finding the ones that are advertised. These sales are fast-paced, and once an item's gone, it's gone. Arriving early and checking all sales items thoroughly is also essential to getting the most out of a New York sample sale, or any sample sale for that matter.Not all sample sales have changing rooms for shoppers to try on clothing. Shoppers should take their measurements in advance, and then measure a garment at the event to see if it will fit. (MORE)
