Q:

Let sample space upper s equals startset 1 comma 2 comma 3 comma 4 comma 5 comma 6 comma 7 comma 8 comma 9 comma 10 endset. suppose the outcomes are equally likely. compute the probability of the event upper e equals startset 5 comma 8 endset.

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:  1/5Step-by-step explanation: sample space S={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}outcomes are equally likely means that they have equal chances of their occuranceE={5,8}P(E)=number of outcomes favorable to E/total number of outcomes        =2/10        =1/5
