(c) Tossing a tail on the first toss 4.2 (a) Simple events include selecting a red ball. (b) Selecting a white ball 4.3 (a) 30/90 = 1/3 = 0.33 (b) 60/90 = 2/3 = 0.67 (c) 10/90 = 1/9 = 0.11 (d) 30 30 10 50 5 0.556 90 90 90 90 9 + - = = = 4.4 (a) 60/100 = 3/5 = 0.6 (b) 10/100 = 1/10 = 0.1 (c) 35/100 = 7/20 = 0.35 (d) 60 100 + 65 100 35 100 = 90 100 = 9 10 = 0.9 4.5 (a) A priori classical (b) Subjective (c) A priori classical (d) Empirical classical 4.6 (a) Mutually exclusive, not collectively exhaustive. “Registered voters in the United States were asked whether they registered as Republicans, Democrats, or none of the above.” will be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive.
