I'm sorry my English is a quite bad and I failed to understand.

5. SqueeSpleen

The first time I read this, I understood now. I'll try to help you.

6. andijo76

ok thankyou never did this before ever so its confusing to me too

7. SqueeSpleen

I think it's something like this: |dw:1328380502947:dw|

8. SqueeSpleen

Then each time you make a choice you go a step forward in the diagram. Retype the d) please, I think b) isn't entire, it seems like something is missing.

9. SqueeSpleen

Sample space: {DJF, DJG, DJT, DJM, DBF, DBG, DBT, DBM, WJF, WJG, WJT, WJM, WBF, WBG, WBT, WTM} Is probabilities in each choice are uniform and idependant, then each element has 1/16 chances of happening. 1/16=0.0625 or 6.25%

10. SqueeSpleen

b) and d) seems incompletes, c is missing.

11. andijo76

i know i am trying to figure it out

12. andijo76

a)Determine the number of points in the sample space. b)Construct a tree diagram and determine the sample space.Determine the probability that c)John Adams is selected. d)either A Farewell to Arms or Moby-wingspan is selected. e)Moby-wingspan is not selected.

13. andijo76

heres the rest of it e was missing also

14. SqueeSpleen

c) 50% Half of the possible results have him in them. d) 50%, they have 25% each one and they never happen together, so they intersection is 0. 25%+25%-0=50% e)Moby is not selected is 75%, because is 1-Moby is selected, and this is 25%.
