**Finding Sample Spaces and events** In Exercises 1–4, list or describe the elements in the specified set. *See Example 1*.

**Coin Toss** A coin is tossed. When a head occurs, the coin is tossed again; otherwise, a six-sided die is tossed.

(a) The sample space *S*

(b) The event *A* that 4, 5, or 6 occurs on the die

(c) The event *B* that two heads occur

**(a)**

To determine

The sample space of an experiment when a coin is tossed and when a head occurs, the coin is tossed again; otherwise, a six-sided die is tossed.

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The provided information is that, a coin is tossed and when a head occurs, the coin is tossed again; otherwise, a six-sided die is tossed.

Consider the provided information is that, a coin is tossed and when a head occurs, the coin is tossed again; otherwise, a six-sided die is tossed.

The sample space is the total possible outcome of an experiment.

So, for an experiment consists of a coin is tossed and when a head occurs, the coin is tossed again; otherwise, a six-sided die is tossed.

**(b)**

To determine

The event

**(c)**

To determine

The event
