C = {(1, 1) (2, 2) (3, 3) (4, 4) (5, 5) (6, 6)} , n(C) = 6

Question 3.

Write sample space ‘S’ and number of sample point n(S) for each of the following experiments. Also write events A, B, C in the set form and write n(A), n(B), n(C).

Three coins are tossed simultaneously.

Condition for event A : To get at least two heads.

Condition for event B : To get no head.

Condition for event C : To get head on the second coin.

Sample Space, S = {HHH, HHT, HTT, HTH, THT, TTH, THH, TTT}

Number of sample points, n(S) = 8

To get at least two heads ,A = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH}

n(A) = 4

To get no head, B = {TTT}

n(B) = 1

To get head on the second coin ,C = {HHH, HHT, THH}

n(C) = 3

Question 4.

Write sample space ‘S’ and number of sample point n(S) for each of the following experiments. Also write events A, B, C in the set form and write n(A), n(B), n(C).

Two digit numbers are formed using digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 without repetition of the digits.

Condition for event A : The number formed is even

Condition for event B : The number formed is divisible by 3.

Condition for event C : The number formed is greater than 50.

Sample Space, S= {10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 40, 41, 42, 43,45, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54}

Number of sample points, n(S) = 25

The number formed is even , A = {10, 12, 14, 20, 24, 30, 32, 34, 40, 42, 50, 52, 54}

n(A) = 13

The number formed is divisible by 3, B = {12, 15, 21, 24, 30, 42, 45, 51, 54}

n(B) = 9

The number formed is greater than 50,C = {51, 52, 53, 54} n(C) = 4

Question 5.

From three men and two women, environment committee of two persons is to be formed.

Condition for event A : There must be at least one woman member.

Condition for event B : One man, one woman committee to be formed

Condition for event C : There should not be a woman member.

Sample Space, S = {M1M2, M1M3, M1F1, M1F2, M2M3, M2F1, M2F2, M3F1, M3F2, F1F2}

Number of sample points, n(S) = 10

There must be at least one woman member , A = {M1F1, M1F2, M2F1, M2F2, M3F1, M3F2, F1F2}
