3. For a population of independent #1s, standardizing the sample mean using the sample variance gives this
4. The sum of the squares of independent #2s; used in tests of independence
5. The ratio of two #4s; used in likelihood ratio tests, ANOVA
6. The outcome of a single trial with sample space {0,1}
7. The number of successes in a series of independent repeated trials
