If A and B are events, then A and B are said to be disjoint or mutually exclusive if AB is
empty.
Example 3 A coin is tossed three times and the sequence of heads and tails is recorded.
Decide whether the following pair
H is the set of all hands of 2 cards chosen from 52 such that both cards are
diamonds.

Sample Spaces
Let's start with a familiar situation: If you toss a coin and observe which side lands up, there
are two possible results: heads ( H) and tails ( T) . These are the only possibl

The sample median is the middle number when the scores are arranged in ascending order.
To find the median, arrange the scores in ascending order. If n is odd, m is the middle
number, otherwise, it is the average of the two middle numbers. Alternatively,
