Question

For the below, identify whether it is an outcome (elementary event) or an event (compound or composite event). You will get full credit if you get them all correct. You will receive half credit if you miss one. No points for none or one correct. a) Picking a Jack from a deck of cards b) Rolling a die and getting a three c) Flipping a coin twice and getting a Head and then a Tail

Answer #1

a) compound or composite event

Picking a Jack from a deck of cards event can be subdivided into smaller events.

For example picking a jack from a deck with
**hearts.**

Picking a Jack from a deck with **clubs.**

picking a jack from a deck with **diamonds.**

Picking a Jack from a deck with **spades**.

b) Elementary event

Rolling a die and getting a three event cannot be subdivided into smaller events

c) Elementary event

Flipping a coin twice and getting a Head and then tail event cannot be subdivided into smaller events.
