In each of the following, describe the sample space for the indicated experiment.
A coin is tossed four times.
Let H denote the event of a head and T denote the event of a tail
Total number of sample space=(24)=16
We define the possible outcomes by an ordered set (w,x, y, z)
w denotes the event the coin is tossed for the first time
x denotes the event the coin is tossed for the second time
y denotes the event the coin is tossed for the third time
z denotes the event the coin is tossed for the fourth time
