P(A) = |A| / |S| = 6 / 10 = 0.6 The probability of any set is equal to the number of members of that set divided by the number of members in the “world” set S. [In terms of our probability problems: the probability of a particular outcome or set of outcomes of an experiment is equal to the number of outcomes that fit our desired description, divided by the total number of outcomes (sequences or groups) possible.] (e) [2 p.] What is P(A B)? | | 8 ( ) 0.8 | | 10 AB P A B S (f) [2 p.] What is P( (A B) C ) ?
