Problem 2.1

List the elements of each of the following sample spaces: (a) the set of integers between 1 and 50 divisible by 8; (b) the set S = {x | x2 +4x5=0 }; (c) the set of outcomes when a coin is tossed until a tail or three heads appear; (d) the set S = {x | x is a continent}; (e) the set S = {x | 2x4 0 and x<1}.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

FOR QUARTILES AND BOX PLOT, FIND THE MEDIANS OF Q1 Q2 and Q3!!!!!! Z = (number of units in sample – sample mean) / standard deviation. Probability Two or more possible outcomes Ex: rolling a die, tossing a coin, picking a card, etc Event- an outcome or set of outcomes of interest in an experiment. Sample Space- collection of all possible outcomes in an experiment Ex: Grades: S { A,B, C, D, F} P(A) = (number of possible outcomes in an event)/ total number of possible outcomes in an experiment. 0 ≤ p ≤ 1 P = 0 impossible event Close to 0 rare or unlikely event .5 50-50 chance Close to 1 likely event 1 sure event (will happen) Compliment of an event- is that the event does not occur: P(A') = 1- P(A) Odds in favor of A- P(A)/ P(A'). Find the probability of A th
