[Please give mathematical expression(s), rather than just ( x,y ) is in the triangle.] x y 1 2 1 2 Figure 1: A triangle. (b.) A point is chosen at random in the quadrilateral in Figure 2. What is the sample space? [Hint: It might be helpful to give bounds on the x coordinate and then give bounds on the y coordinate.] x y 1 2 3 4 1 2 Figure 2: A quadrilateral. 1 2. Socks. A matching pair of blue socks, a matching pair of red socks, and one lone white rightfooted sock are in a drawer. The socks are pulled out of the drawer, one at a time. Suppose the color and the foot of the sock are both noted as all five socks are consec utively pulled out of the drawer.
