Let sample space S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}. Suppose the outcomes are equally likely....


Let sample space {eq}S = \{1,\ 2,\ 3,\ 4,\ 5,\ 6,\ 7,\ 8,\ 9,\ 10\} {/eq}. Suppose the outcomes are equally likely. Compute the probability of the event {eq}E = \{3,\ 10\} {/eq}.


Probability measures the possibility of an event taking place. The probability is quantified between {eq}0 {/eq} and {eq}1 {/eq} where the lowest probability is {eq}0 {/eq} where an event has no chance of taking place. The highest probability is {eq}1 {/eq} where an event has {eq}100\% {/eq} chances of taking place.

Answer and Explanation:

When events are equally likely, then they have equal chances of occurring. In the given case, in the sample space {eq}S {/eq}, there are...
