where the fourth let-

ter is to be ignored in each sample point.

b) For

the event corresponding to the statement � at most one tail is obtained in three
tosses� is � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � . For � � it is � � � � � � � � and in � � it is not possible
to � nd such an event. For � � the event corresponding to the statement � at most one tail is
obtained in the � rst three tosses� is� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �
c) It isnot possible to � nd anevent corresponding to the statement � at mostone tail isobtained
in three tosses� inevery conceivable sample space for the tossingof three coins,because some
sample spaces are toocoarse, that is, the sample points that contain this outcome also contain

oppositeoutcomes. For instance, in
� �

above, the sample point � an even # of � �s� contains
the outcomes

� � � � � � � � � � �
for which our statement is true and the outcome

� � � �
for which it is not true.
