Suppose that one card is to be selected from a deck of 20 cards taht cointains 10 red cards numbered from 1 to 10 and 10 blue cards numbered from 1 to 10. Let A be the event that a card with an even number is selected; let B be the event that the blue card is selected; and let C be the event that a card with a number less than 5 is selected. Describe the sample spase S and describe each of the following events both(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); in wordsand as subsets of S:

a) ABC

b) BC^{c}

c) A U B U C

d) A(B U C)

e) A^{c}B^{c}C^{c}

Please someone help me aboth the part how to describe the eventsin words

I did (a) ABC={even numbered blue cards less than 5}

total autcomes=20

S={ R1, R2, R3...R20}

A(even cards)={2,4,6,8,10}

B(blue cards)={B1,B2,B3...B10}

C(cards less than 5)={C1,C2,C3,C4}

ABC={even numbered blue cards less than 5}={ABC2,ABC4}

is that look okay.

b)B[tex]\bigcap[/tex]C^{c}={5,6,7,8...10}

c)A U B U C= {1, 2...10}

d)A(B U C)={2,4,6,8,10}

e) A^{c}B^{c}C^{c}={11, 12...20}

I am confused how to describe b) thru e). I know how to solve the problems, butdescribe in wordsI am not sure what to do. Please help. Thank you.
