Unformatted text preview: OR Job 2, in p+q ways. •. “OR”: interpreted as addition 7/26/11 2. The Multiplication Rule: Suppose Job 1 can be done in p ways and, for each of these ways, Job 2 can be done q ways. Then we can do BOTH Job 1 AND Job 2 in pxq ways. • “AND”: interpreted as multiplication 7/26/11 7/26/11 7/26/11 7/26/11 • In a lot of problems, the sample space of interest consists of a set of arrangements or sequences. These are commonly called permutations . • Example: Arranging letters 7/26/11 7/26/11 • 7/26/11 • n 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 n! 1 1 2 6 24 12 72 504 4032 3628 80 36288 00 7/26/11 • 7/26/11 • As we just saw when n gets reasonably large, for example, when sampling from a deck of cards or a large population, we can no longer just count the number of cases we are interested in. • And the counting rules and arrangements can be used to simplify the situation. 7/26/11 • Examples:...
