 Feb 10, 2013 Sample Space by: Staff Answer Since the sample space is the set of all possible outcomes: The sample space for randomly choosing a letter from the word "space" is the following set. Set A = {s, p , a , c, e} The sample space for randomly choosing a letter from the word "math" is the following set. Set B = {m, a , t , h} The intersection of Set A and Set B is: A ∩ B = {a} ---------------------------------------------------------- The sample space for randomly choosing a letter from the word "space", and then randomly choosing a letter from the word "math" is the following set: Set C = {{s,m}, {s,a}, {s,t}, {s,h}, {p,m}, {p,a}, {p,t}, {p,h}, {a,m}, {a,a}, {a,t}, {a,h}, {c,m}, {c,a}, {c,t}, {c,h}, {e,m}, {e,a}, {e,t}, {e,h}} This can be shown as a tree diagram.
