If the last digit must be a 3 and no digit can repeat, then there are 3 options (1, 2, and 4) for the first digit, 2 options for the second digit, 1 option for the third digit, and 1 option (a 3) for the last digit. The total number of outcomes that end with the number three is then 3×2×1×1=6.
The total number of possible outcomes is 4×3×2×1=24 since there are 4 options for the first digit, 3 for the second, 2 for the third, and 1 for the fourth.
The probability an ID number will end with the number three is then 624=14

Let ( X , μ ) be a probability measure space. Suppose f n f pointwise and f n is dominated by some μ-integrable function. Let ( A n ) n be a sequence of measurable sets converging to some measurable S with μ ( S ) = 1.

Question. Is it true that X f n 1 A n d μ X f d μ ?

A half-baked idea
Define g n := f n 1 A n . In case,

Conjecture. 1 A n 1 S pointwise,

which I suspect to be true, then | g n | is dominated by a μ-integrable function and so the Dominated Convergence Theorem gaurantees that X g n d P X f 1 S d P = X f d P since P ( S ) = 1.

Integration with partial fractions help please
I'm trying to work in my partial fractions chapter and some were easy but for whatever reason, I'm stuck now:
3 x 2 + 2 x + 4 d x
What I tried: since my denominator is of higher order and a irreducible quadratic, I set it up to start like this:
x 3 = A x + B x 2 + 2 x + 4 + C x + D x 2 + 2 x + 4 d x
I'm not really sure if that's right, the example in the book is a little different.
Anyway, after multiplying and collecting terms, I end up with
x 5 ( C ) = 0
x 4 ( 4 C + D ) = 0
x 3 ( A + 12 C + 4 D ) = 0
x 2 ( 2 A + B + 16 C + 12 D ) = 0
x ( 4 A + 2 B + 16 D + 16 ) = 1
4 B + 16 D = 3
but then when I tried to solve by substitution/addition methods, my numbers don't make sense. Am I even on the right track here? We just got started in this class and I feel like I'm behind already. Thanks for any help.
