Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.9I was going thru the lesson and it said biased and unbiased. But, when I took my test, I only got one right so i guess I didn't really understand what it was.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1bias is when the likelihood isn't uniform... or the events are not equally likely as an example... a normal 6 sided die... has the numbers 1 to 6 on the faces... then the probability of any number is 1/6 P(5) = 1/6 P(2) = 1/6 etc in Bias a 6 sided die... with the numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, the probability of each event has changed P(1) = 1/6 P(2) = 1/6 P(3) = 1/6 and P(4) = 3/6 this is bias... one evernt is more likely to occur

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no bias... all events equally likely bias... one or several events are more likely hope that helps...
