2 Sample Spaces Outcome: a possible result of the random phenomenon studied. Experiment: any process leading to an uncertain outcome. (but it is known that the outcome will be one of several possible outcomes). The sample space of an experiment is the set of all possible outcomes. Example: Toss a coin: Observe Temperature at 7AM at Columbus airport. S? Roll a six-sided die: Section 2.1 We will denote the sample space by S . S = { heads, tails } = { H, T } S = { 1,2,3,4,5,6 } Eamples of Sample Spaces Section 2.1
