Abstract

Many undergraduate and most graduate students will find it necessary, if not required, to take a basic course in probability and statistics. Since many academics use statistics more often than probability in performing data analyses for publication in scholarly journals, sections of such classes on probability may be slighted. Furthermore, many texts do not present a unified approach to probability formulas. Here a chart is presented that allows for an integration of formulas as a function of the key issue and the underlying conditions.
