# Probability and Stats - Show the Sample Space

## Homework Statement

An assembly line is observed until items of both types—good (G) items and items not meeting specification (N)—are observed. Show the sample space.

## Homework Equations

Let G be Good
Let N be Not Good

## The Attempt at a Solution

S = {GN, GGN, GG...N, GG..., NG, NNG, NN...G, NN...}

I'm not sure if this represents the sample space. I realize the sample space is essentially infinite, but I'm not sure if I've accomplished the task of showing the sample space. I also am not sure if I am missing anything or misunderstanding the question.

Thanks.

Yes, that is the sample space.
