Determine the sample space for the experiment. Five coins are flipped and the number of heads observed is recorded.

OpenStudy (kropot72):

The sample space is the set of all possible outcomes of the 5 trials.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

So what would I choose out of S={1,2,3,4,5} S={5} S={0,1,2,3,4,5} S={HT,TH} S={HHHHH}

OpenStudy (anonymous):

thats 32 outcomes...

OpenStudy (kropot72):

The correct choice is the set S = {0,1,2,3,4,5} where each number is the possible number of outcomes.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

If I have only 5 coins, why does my answer have 6 choices?

OpenStudy (kropot72):

The reason being that there is a probability of all tails and no heads.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Oh, ok. Thanks for helping me understand :)
