Unformatted text preview: P ( S ) = 1. • Rules of Probability • P ( E ∪ F ) = P ( E ) + P ( F )-P ( E ∩ F ) • If E and F are mutually exclusive, then P ( E ∩ F ) = 0 • P ( E ) = 1-P ( E c ) 1. An experiment consists of randomly selecting a sample of 2 chips from a bowl containing 3 chips numbered 1 through 3 and observing the numbers. (a) Find the sample space (b) Find the simple events associated with the experiment. 2. A marble is selected at random from a bowl containing 3 blue, 6 yellow, and 8 orange marbles and the color is observed. (a) Find the sample space for this experiment. (b) Find the probability distribution for this experiment. (c) Find the event E where E is the event that the marble drawn is not orange. (d) What is P ( E )?...
