For each of the following, describe the sample space, S. a) A mother has a child; it is either a boy or a girl. b) A cancer patient is treated with a new type of treatment; the response variable is the length of time the patient lives after the treatment. c) An A.P. Statistics student receives a grade at the end of the semester. d) A basketball player shoots four free throws. The number of makes is recorded. e) A basketball player shoots four free throws. The sequence of makes and misses is recorded. f) Toss a coin 4 times and record the results.
just list all the possible outcomes ....
@amistre64 but I don't understand
A mother has a child; it is either a boy or a girl; what are all the possible results from this event?
B or G right? @amistre64
An A.P. Statistics student receives a grade at the end of the semester; what are all the possible grades a student can get?
id say yes, but that depends on the grading rubrik; migh be some - and +s roaming about in there
But for number 2, that's impossible to solve I don't know the information right
yeah, i was trying to decipher that one .... A cancer patient is treated with a new type of treatment; the response variable is the length of time the patient lives after the treatment. might be 0 to k years
there are discrete counts and continuous counts. im assuming for this one that it needs a continuous count

okay. for D it would be Make, Miss make miss make miss make miss?
i dont think the implication of infinity is quite accurate :) but it suggests that its the right track at least
sets of 4 throws: hit or miss mmmm mmmh mmhm mhmm hmmm etc ...
well, the number fo makes might be better suited as: m, mm, mmm, mmmm
okay! thank you so much
youre welcome, and good luck :)
