Now, suppose that an outcome is in exactly m of the events Ei , where m > 0. 4. Thus, for m > 0, we must show that 1= However, since 1 = m 1 m 2 − m 3 + − ··· ; m m m , the preceding equation is equivalent to 0 m i=0 m i (−1)i = 0 and the latter equation follows from the binomial theorem, since m m i 0 = (−1 + 1)m = i=0 (−1)i (1)m−i 2. The following is a succinct way of writing the inclusion–exclusion identity: n P(∪ni=1 Ei ) = (−1)r+1 P(Ei1 · · · Eir ) i1 <···

2 Sample Space and Events 23 4. If the experiment consists of tossing two dice, then the sample space consists of the 36 points S = {(i, j): i, j = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} where the outcome (i, j) is said to occur if i appears on the leftmost die and j on the other die. 5. If the experiment consists of measuring (in hours) the lifetime of a transistor, then the sample space consists of all nonnegative real numbers; that is, S = {x: 0 … x < q} Any subset E of the sample space is known as an event. In other words, an event is a set consisting of possible outcomes of the experiment.

N 34 Chapter 2 Axioms of Probability From this equation, it follows from Axiom 3 that, for any event E, P(E) = number of outcomes in E number of outcomes in S In words, if we assume that all outcomes of an experiment are equally likely to occur, then the probability of any event E equals the proportion of outcomes in the sample space that are contained in E. EXAMPLE 5a If two dice are rolled, what is the probability that the sum of the upturned faces will equal 7? Solution. We shall solve this problem under the assumption that all of the 36 possible outcomes are equally likely.
