a.
Sample points are the most basic outcome of an experiment.
A:{{1,6}, {6,1}, {2,5}, {5,2}, {3,4}, {4,3}}
B: {{1,4}, {2,4}, {3,4}, {4,4}, {5,4}, {6,4}, {4,1}, {4,2}, {4,3}, {4,5}, {4,6}}
The intersection of A and B is the event that occurs if we roll both a 7 and at
least one of the two dice is showing a 4. Therefore the sample points for the
intersection are:
A
∩
B: {{3,4}, {4,3}}
The union of A and B is the event that occurs if we observe a sum of 7, at
least one of the two dice showing a 4 or both on a single throw of the die. The
sample points in the event A
∪
B are those for which A occurs, B occurs, or
both A and B occur. The sample points for the union are:
A
∪
B: {{1,6}, {6,1}, {2,5}, {5,2}, {3,4}, {4,3}, {1,4}, {2,4}, {4,4}, {5,4}, {6,4}, {4,1},
{4,2}, {4,5}, {4,6}}
We know that A :{Observe a sum of 7} and the compliment of A is defined as
the event that occurs when A does not occur. Therefore,
