A concrete beam may fail either by shear (S) or flexure (F). Suppose that three failed beams are randomly selected and the type of failure is determined for each one. Let X= the number of beams among the three selected that failed by shear. List each outcome in the sample space along with the associated value of X.

Answer : Step 1 of 1 : A concrete beam may fail either by shear (S) or flexure (F). Suppose that three failed beams are randomly selected and the type of failure is determined for each one. Let X= the number of beams among the three selected that failed by shear. The claim is to list the each outcome in the sample space along with the associated value of X Beam 1 Beam 2 Beam 3 X Outcome 1 S S S 3 Outcome 2 S S F 2 Outcome 3 S F S 2 Outcome 4 F S S 2 Outcome 5 S F F 1 Outcome 6 F S F 1 Outcome 7 F F S 1 Outcome 8 F F F 0
