Let A = {getting Internet service}, B = {getting TV service}. 1 What is the probability that a randomly selected household gets at least one of these two services from the company? P(A ∪ B) = P(A) + P(B) − P(A ∩ B) = 0.6 + 0.8 − 0.5 = 0.9.

The second element P can be selected in n2 ways. The pair (O, P) can be selected in n1 n2 ways. Haijun Li Math/Stat 360-1: Probability and Statistics, Washington State University Week 2 11 / 19 Permutations and Combinations Consider a set of n distinct objects, and 0 ≤ k ≤ n. Definition An ordered sequence of k objects is called a permutation. Pk ,n = # of all permutations of size k from the n objects. An unordered subset is called a combination. Ck ,n = # of all combinations of size k from the n objects. A more popular notation for the combination number is kn (read “n choose k ”).
