Let A=event space. Assume that {A_n} is a monotone nondecreasing sequence of events in A. Let {A_n} be a sequence of sets defined as follows: B_1=A_1; B_i=A_i−A_(i−1) for i in {2,3,4,…} Prove that {B_n} is a sequence of mutually exclusive events in A. Justify each line of proof.

Let A=event space. Assume that { A n } is a monotone nondecreasing sequence of events in A A. Let { A n } be a sequence of sets defined as follows:
B 1 = A 1 ; B i = A i A i 1   for   i { 2 , 3 , 4 , }
Prove that { B n } is a sequence of mutually exclusive events in A. Justify each line of proof.
I know that what I need to show here is B i B j = for any i < j. I've divided it to be proof by cases where case 1 is i = 1   and   j { 2 , 3 , 4 , } and case 2 is i { 2 , 3 , 4 , } and j { 2 , 3 , 4 , } where i < j so that B i = A i A i 1   and   B j = A j A j 1 and B i = A i A i 1   and   B j = A j A j 1 where i { 2 , 3 , 4 } and j { i + 1 , i + 2 , }.

Your idea is correct. As a first step, take an element e B j . You have to prove that e B i . For this, use the definition B j = A j A j 1 . Since e A j A j 1 , what does this tell you about e?

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
