Give mathematical expressions each of the following: (a) the probability of A , (b) the set of all possible outcomes, (c) the events A and B are dis joint, (d) the events A and B are mutually exclusive, (e) is an outcome, (f) either the event A or the event B . (g) the complement of the event A , (h) the probability that A does not occur. 2. Express the following in words: (a) AB = , (b) P ( B ) , (c) , (d) . (e) A B , (f) A B . (g) P ( A c ) . 3. Let = { a , b , c } . (a) Suppose { a } F . What other subsets of must be in F so that the event axioms described in our text hold? In other words, give me the smallest F that contains { a } and satisfies the axioms. (b) Suppose both { a } and { c } are in F . What other subsets of need to be in F so that the event axioms hold? 4. Suppose = { 1 , 2 , 3 } , P { 1 } = 1 / 10, P { 2 } = 3 / 10 , and P { 3 } = c ....
