49 3. a. A = { SSF, SFS, FSS }. b. B = { SSS, SSF, SFS, FSS }. c. For event C to occur, the system must have component 1 working ( S in the first position), then at least one of the other two components must work (at least one S in the second and third positions): C = { SSS, SSF, SFS }. d. C = { SFF, FSS, FSF, FFS, FFF }. A C = { SSS, SSF, SFS, FSS }. A C = { SSF, SFS }. B C = { SSS, SSF, SFS, FSS }. Notice that B contains C , so B C = B . B C = { SSS SSF, SFS }. Since B contains C , B C = C. 4. a. The 2 4 = 16 possible outcomes have been numbered here for later reference.

In words, the union of (c) and (d) is the event that either all of the mortgages are variable, or that at most one of them is variable-rate: outcomes 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 16. The intersection of (c) and (d) is the event that all of the mortgages are fixed-rate: outcome 1.

    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.
