Abstract

We continue the discussion of experiments with finite sample spaces. The doctor testing salve had a sample space with eight sample points: RRR, RRN, …, NNN; the waitress taking egg orders had a sample space with six points: S, OH, 0E, SS, B, P. In order to talk about a sample space S in general, it is necessary to have some names for the distinct sample points.
