ISE 220 PROBABILITY CONCEPTS IN ENGINEERING Solutions to Homework Problem Set # 2 Instructor: Dr. Ashok Patel Fall 2010 Problem 1 (a) Prove that A-B and A B form a partition of the set A. Solution: Note that ( A-B ) ( A B ) = ( A B c ) ( A B ) = A B c B = A φ = . Further A = A S = A ( B B c ) = ( A B ) ( A B c ) by the distributive law = ( A B ) ( A-B ) Thus ( A-B ) ( A B ) = and ( A-B ) ( A B ) = A . Hence A-B and A B form a partition of the set A. (b) Suppose that E 1 , E 2 , …, E n form a partition of sample space S . Let B S . Define A 1 , A 2 , … , A n such that A i = E i B . Then prove that A 1 , A 2 , … , A n form a partition of the set B . Solution: Note that E 1 , E 2 , …, E n form a partition of sample space
