Errata for Probability and Statistical Inference, by R. V. Hogg, E. A. Tanis, and D. L. Zimmerman, 10th edition (2020): Pearson

1. Exercise 2.4-11: It should say "... and verify that it is positive if p < 0.5, zero if p = 0.5, and negative if p > 0.5."
2. Exercise 6.4-21: The upper limit of support for x should be plus infinity, not theta.
3. Exercise 7.6-10: Symbols a, b, and c should be beta1-hat, beta2-hat, and beta3-hat, respectively.
4. Exercise 7.6-11: This exercise is correct, but out of place. Part (a) asks for the (sample) correlation coefficient, which is not defined until Section 9.6.
5. Exercise 7.7-6: This exercise is also correct but out of place as it involves calculation of the sample correlation coefficient, which is not defined until Section 9.6.
