Unformatted text preview: Write out the sample space for the given experiment. Separate your answers using commas. 3 coins are tossed. (Note: Use the letter H to indicate heads and T for tails.) Before writing out the sample space, it is helpful to know how many total outcomes are possible. Here we have 2 possibilities for each coin toss, heads or tails. Now we can make a tree diagram to represent the sample space. 3‘dCoin: @®@®@®®® Hence, starting with the first branch and working our way down the left side, we see the first outcome could be HHH. Now with the same starting point but taking a different path at the very end, we see the second outcome could be HHT. We will continue to do this for each branch until we have the sample space, which is { HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT }. Answer: { HRH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT } ...
