2.3 Equiprobable Sample Spaces!
!
!
Define: !
A sample space is called equiprobable if every sample point is eqully likely to occur!

Theorem:!
!
"If S is an equiprobable space, then for any sample point a, Pr[a]=1/n(s), so for any event E,!

Document Summary

A sample space is called equiprobable if every sample point is eqully likely to occur. If s is an equiprobable space, then for any sample point a, pr[a]=1/n(s), so for any event e, 5 i 2 3. 4 5 63 each is equallylikely so s is equiprobable n s 6. I 2 3,4 5 w n e 5.
