Unformatted text preview: failed. Consider an experiment that consists of observing the status of each component, and let the outcomes of the experiment be given by all vectors ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , x 4 , x 5 ), where x i is 1 if component i is working and 0 if component i is failed. a. How many outcomes are in the sample space of this experiment? b. Suppose that the system will work if components 1 and 2 are both working, or if components 3 and 4 are both working, or if components 1, 3, and 5 are all working. Let W be the event that the system will work. Specify all the outcomes in W. c. Let A be the event that components 4 and 5 have both failed. How many outcomes are contained in the event A? d. Write out all outcomes in the event A & W....
