1. COMBINATORIAL ANALYSIS 1.1 Counting Principles 1. Theorem (The basic principle of counting): If the set E contains n elements and the set F contains m elements, there are nm ways in which we can choose, first, an element of E and then an element of F . 2. Theorem (The generalized basic principle of counting): If r experiments that are to be performed are such that the first one may result in any of 1 n possible outcomes, and if for each of these 1 n possible outcomes there are 2 n possible outcomes of the second experiment, and if for each of the possible outcomes of the first two experiments there are 3 n possible outcomes of the third experiment, and if …, then there is a total of r n n n 2 1 , possible outcomes of the r experiments. 3. Theorem: A set with n elements has n 2 subsets. 4. Tree diagrams 1.2 Permutations 1. Permutation: ! n 1

2. AXIOMS OF PROBABILITY 2.1 Sample Space and Events 1. Set theory concepts: set, element, roster method, rule method, subset, null set (empty set). 2. Complement: The complement of an event A with respect to S is the subset of all elements of S that are not in A . We denote the complement of A by the symbol A’ ( c A ). 3. Intersection: The intersection of two events A and B , denoted by the symbol B A , is the event containing all elements that are common to A and B . -- Two events A and B are mutually exclusive, or disjoint, if B A that is, if A and B have no elements in common.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
