In pure set theoretic terms, there is no notion of measure, so it is difficult to talk about events being independent. Disjoint events are those with no overlap, and you don't need a notion of measure to say that two sets have no elements in common.
To capture the notion of independence, we would have to say that the proportion of set A that overlaps with set B is the same as the proportion of the universal set that set B occupies. In pure set theory, there's not really any need for talking about sets in this way, unless we're doing probability.

Jenny sells ‘honey tea’ to raise fund for homeless people. The probability of making a sale is, independently, 0.3 for each person she approaches
Based on Jenny’s experience selling ‘honey tea’ for the last 2 weeks, the probability that the person she approaches will buy 0, 1, 2 or more than 2 cups are 0.7, 0.15, 0.10 and 0.05 respectively. Jenny plans to approached 20 persons. What is the probability that 10 will not buy, 3 will buy 1 cup, 4 will buy 2 cups and the rest will buy than 2 cups?

Consider a share that is modelled by a binomial random variable. The probability that the share increases in value by 20¢ in one month is 0.6. The probability that it decreases in value by 20¢ in one month is 0.4. The share is held for 5 months then sold. Let X denote the number of increases in the price of the share over the 5 months. В (п,
(a) What is n and p if XB(n,p)?
(b) Find E(X)andσ(X).
(c) Let Y be the random variable which models the change in share price. Then Ү0.2X0.2(nX) because 0.2X is the total increase in share price and 0.2(nX) is the total decrease in share price. Simplify the expression for Y in terms of X. Then using (b), find E(Y) and σ(Y).

Beth is taking an eleven​-question ​multiple-choice test for which each question has three answer​ choices, only one of which is correct. Beth decides on answers by rolling a fair die and marking the first answer choice if the die shows 1 or​ 2, the second if the die shows 3 or​ 4, and the third if the die shows 5 or 6. Find the probability of the stated event.

The Metropolis police station calls Superman an average of 3 times per hour to ask for his help. The probability that the station calls Superman in a time interval is dependent only on the length of the time interval and, furthermore, is independent of whether or not the department called Superman on any previous time interval. Superman goes on a date with Lois Lane and picks her up from her place at 7:00pm.
If the number of times he is called is independent from one hour to the next, what is the probability that Superman and Lois can finish their 4 hour date uninterrupted?

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
