Then { E n } are mutually disjoint, and S ∞ n =1 E n is the event that 5 occurs before 7. So the desired probability is P ( ∞ [ n =1 E n ) = ∞ X n =1 P ( E n ) . We need to calculate P ( E n ). Note that E 1 = { (1 , 4) , (2 , 3) , 3 , 2) , (4 , 1) } . So P ( E 1 ) = 4 36 = 1 9 . Note also that E 2 = { ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , x 4 ) | x 3 + x 4 = 5 , x 1 + x 2 6 = 5 , x 1 + x 2 6 = 7 } . So E 2 has (36- 10) × 4 = 26 × 4 outcomes, and thus P ( E 2 ) = 26 × 4 (36) 2 = 1 9 26 36 ....
