Definition: Probability for Experiments with Discrete Sample Spaces An experiment has discrete sample space S = {e 1 , e 2 , ... }. The experiment in repeated N times. The observed outcome is e i a fraction f i of the times such that f 1 +f 2 + ... = 1. Definition: P(e i ) is the probability of event e i As N , f i P(e i )

Three Axioms: P(E) is the probability of event E 1. 0 1 P E ( ) 2. P(S)=1 3. For two disjoint events E 1 and E 2 , E E 1 2 = ∅ , P E E P E P E ( ) ( ) ( ) 1 2 1 2 = + and P E P E ( ) ( ) = - 1 2
Addition Rule: For any events E and F, P E F P E P F P E F ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) = + - 10% of parts have defect A and 5% have defect B. 2% have both defects A and B. Find the probability a part has at least one defect. Given: event A = { part has defect A } P( A) = .10 event B = {part has defect B } P( B) = .05 event A B = { part has defects A AND B } P(A B) = .02 3

Find the prob of at least one defect Given: P( A) = .10 P( B) = .05 P(A B) = .02 Find: E ={at least one defect} = A B P(A B) Apply the addition rule: P (A B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A B) = .10 + .05 - .02 = .13

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
