Unformatted text preview: 5 Properties of Probability a The set of all possible outcomes is called the sample space S 0 An event is any collection or subset of the outcomes contained in S i A simple event is exactly one outcome, a compound event consists of more than one outcome 0 Let .9 be a sample space and let A be an event. Denote the probability of A occurring as P (A) o Axiom 1: All probabilities are betWeen 0 and l, P(A) E [0, 1} for any A I Axiom 2: The total probability of the sample space is 1, P(.S') = 1, the outcome will be somewhere in the szunple space a The probability of the empty set is zero, PM) = a Let A be an event and let AC be the compliment.

### What students are saying

• 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.
