PROJECT DESCRIPTION Sammy Student performs a statistical experiment by tossing a fair coin 5 times and observing all the possible outcomes. Thus far, Sammy has come up with only part of the actual sample space of the experiment, i.e. the set of all possible distinct outcomes. Can you assist Sammy and find the missing elements in the sample space? Information About this Project One of the probability distribution functions used in statistics is the geometric distribution.
