SOLUTIONS FOR HWK # 1 1.1-2 (a) S= { bbb,gbb,bgb,bbg,bgg,gbg,ggb,ggg } . Note that n = 2 ,r = 3, and here we consider ordered samples with replacement so the size of the outcome space is n r = 8. (b) { female,male } . (c) { 000,001,002,. ..,999 } . Problem B . The size of the outcome space is 8. A = { bgg,gbg,ggb,ggg } ,P ( A ) = 4 8 = 1 / 2. B = { bgg,gbg,ggb } ; P ( B ) = 3 8 . C = { ggb,ggg } ; P ( C ) = 2 8 = 1 4 . D = B . E = B . 1.3-1 The number of ordered samples of size r = 4 with possible repetitions from n = 8 objects is 8 4 = 4096. 1.3-2 The number of ordered samples of r = 3 different colors from
