In the city of Milford, applications for zoning changes go through a two-step process: a review by the planning commission and a final decision by the city council. At step 1 the planning commission reviews the zoning change request and makes a positive or negative recommendation concerning the change. At step 2 the city council reviews the planning commission’s recommendation and then votes to approve or to disapprove the zoning change. Suppose the developer of an apartment complex submits an application for a zoning change. Consider the application process as an experiment.

- a. How many sample points are there for this experiment? List the sample points.
- b. Construct a tree diagram for the experiment.

Expert Solution

**a.**

To determine

Find the number of sample points in the experiment. List the sample points of the experiment.

**Calculation:**

The given experiment is a two-step process, it is a review by planning commission and a final decision by the city council. The planning commission makes a positive or negative response and the city commission decides either to approve or disprove the zoning changes.

*Sample points*:

A random experiment is a process that generates a set of well-defined outcomes. Set of all outcomes in a random experiment is called sample space. Each outcome in the sample space is called sample point.

There are two steps in the process. In the first step there are two possible outcomes as positive and negative responses. In second step, there are two possible outcomes as approve and disapprove...
