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.
