This module introduces Venn diagrams as a method for solving some probability problems. This module is included in the Elementary Statistics textbook/collection as an optional lesson.
A
Venn diagram is a picture that represents the outcomes of an experiment. It generally consists of a box that represents the sample space S together with circles or ovals. The circles or ovals represent events.
Suppose an experiment has the outcomes 1, 2, 3, ... , 12 where each outcome has an equal chance of occurring. Let event
$A=\text{{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}}$ and event
$B=\text{{6, 7, 8, 9}}$ . Then
$\mathrm{AANDB}=\text{{6}}$ and
$\mathrm{AORB}=\text{{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}}$ . The Venn diagram is as follows:

Flip 2 fair coins. Let
$A$ = tails on the first coin. Let
$B$ = tails on the second coin. Then
$A=\{\mathrm{TT},\mathrm{TH}\}$ and
$B=\{\mathrm{TT},\mathrm{HT}\}$ .
Therefore,
$\text{A AND B}=\left\{\mathrm{TT}\right\}$ .
$\text{A OR B}=\{\mathrm{TH},\mathrm{TT},\mathrm{HT}\}$ .
The sample space when you flip two fair coins is
$S=\{\mathrm{HH},\mathrm{HT},\mathrm{TH},\mathrm{TT}\}$ . The outcome
$\mathrm{HH}$ is in neither
$A$ nor
$B$ . The Venn diagram is as follows:

Five percent of the students work part time and belong to a club. Draw a Venn diagram showing the relationships. Let
$C$ = student belongs to a club and
$\mathrm{PT}$ = student works part time.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
