Problem 16E

Identifying a Sample Space In Exercise, identify the sample space of the probability experiment and determine the number of outcomes in the sample space. Draw a tree diagram when appropriate.

Guessing a student’s letter grade (A, B, C, D, F) in a class

Solution 16E

Step1 of 2:

From the given problem we are guessing a student’s letter grade (A, B, C, D, F) in a class.

We need to identify the sample space of the probability experiment and determine the number of outcomes in the sample space.

Step2 of 2:

The sample is guessing a student’s letter grade and it is given below:

Sample space = {A, B, C, D, F}

The outcome is 5.
