CHAPTER 3: Probability 3.1 Experiment—Any process of observation that has an uncertain outcome. Event—A set of sample space outcomes. Probability—The probability of an event is the sum of the probabilities of the sample space outcomes or the long-run relative frequency of an event. Sample Space—The set of all possible experimental outcomes. 3.2 The probability of an outcome must be between 0 and 1. The probabilities of all the experimental outcomes must sum to 1. 3.6 a. (1) 49.0/599.4 = .0817 or 8.17% for 2005 (2) 37.9/571.7 = .0663 or 6.63% for 2006 b. listening numbers dropped by 1.54% from 2005 to 2006 c. 1 – (83.3/571.7) = 1-.1457 = .8543 or 85.43% d. CJBXFM of 2.6% increase from 2005 to 2006 (13.7-11.1) 3.8 Events are mutually exclusive if they have no sample space outcomes in common. The two events cannot occur simultaneously. 3.9 Complement of A: Event A does not occur
