STA 4321 I ntroduction to P robability T heory Assignment 1 Assigned Wednesday January 13 Due Wednesday January 20 Show your work to receive full credit. 1. Let A 1 ,A 2 ,... be a countable collection of sets. Give a formal proof (not a picture) of the following statements. (a) T i =1 A i = S i =1 A i (b) T n i =1 A i = S n i =1 A i (c) A 1 A 2 = A 1 A 2 2. Let A and B be arbitrary events. Use the axioms of probability to prove that P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ) - P ( A B ) . [Hint: Note that A B =( A B ) ( A B ) ( B A ) and A B,A B and B A are disjoint events.] Be sure to specifiy where exactly the axioms of probability are used. 3. Let A be an arbitrary event. Use the axioms of probability to prove that P ( A ) = 1 - P ( A ) . STA 4321 - Introduction to Probability Theory Spring 2010 1 Jorge Rom´an
