Put statistical theories into practice with Probability and Statistics For Engineering and the Sciences, 9th Edition. Always a favorite with statistics students, this calculus-based text offers a comprehensive introduction to probability and statistics while demonstrating how professionals apply concepts, models, and methodologies in today's engineering and scientific careers. Jay Devore, an award-winning professor and internationally recognized author and statistician, emphasizes authentic problem scenarios in a multitude of examples and exercises, many of which involve real data, to show how statistics makes sense of the world. Mathematical development and derivations are kept to a minimum. The book also includes output, graphics, and screen shots from various statistical software packages to give you a solid perspective of statistics in action. A Student Solutions Manual, which includes worked-out solutions to almost all the odd-numbered exercises in the book, is available.

We offer sample solutions for Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences homework problems. See examples below:
