Consider the experiment of drawing two cards
from a deck in which all picture cards have been removed and adding
their values (with ace = 1).
a. Describe the outcomes
of this experiment. List the elements of the sample space.
b. What is the
probability of obtaining a total of 5 for the two cards?
c. Let A be the
event “total card value is 5 or less.” Find P(A) and P(Ac).
An airline tracks data on its
