    Quality vs Grade
  22. What is also known as Sigma; represents variation (dispersion) from the average (mean)

  29. Two events can't occur at the same time (if one event occurs, then the other event cannot)
    Mutually Exclusive
  30. The occurrence of one event makes it neither more nor less probable that the other occurs; (ie. past coin flip of heads does not change the probability of the next coin flip being heads)

  31. Choosing a small random sample, and the samples properties should represent the entire group.
    Statistical Sampling
  32. Displays process stability and performance

    Types of Variances
  37. A type of chart contains both bars and a line graph, where individual values are represented in descending order by bars, and the cumulative total is represented by the line; 80/20 rule says 80% of the problems are from 20% of the causes, and dictates you should focus most of your attention on those top few causes
