Problem 2E

Suppose that vehicles taking a particular freeway exit can turn right (R), turn left (L), or go straight (S). Consider observing the direction for each of three successive vehicles. a. List all outcomes in the event A that all three vehicles go in the same direction. b. List all outcomes in the event B that all three vehicles take different directions. c. List all outcomes in the event C that exactly two of the three vehicles turn right. d. List all outcomes in the event D that exactly two vehicles go in the same direction. e. List outcomes in D,C ?D , and C?D.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer: Step 1 of 1 We need to state the population and provide a plausible sample of size 4. a. All distances that might result when you throw a football. The distances usually measured in yards and the following are sample of four such distances. 29.1 yards, 28.3 yards, 24.7 yards, 31 yards. b. Page lengths of books published 5 years from now The following are sample of four such Page lengths of books are 432 pp, 196 pp, 184 pp, 321 pp c. All possible earthquake-strength measurements (Richter scale) that might be recorded in California during the next year The following are sample of four such earthquake-strength measurements (Richter scale) are 2.1, 4.0, 3.2, 6.3 d. All possible yields (in grams) from a certain chemical reaction carried out in a laboratory The following are sample of four such yields (in grams) from a certain chemical reaction are 0.07 g, 1.58 g, 7.1 g, 27.2 g
