@AndreNicholas can you explain why we need to ADD the two to get P(E)?

comment Probability question at listing number of outcomes in the sample space.
we just have covered the Method of Inclusion/Exclusion in class today, but the teacher said it'd be easier to get the compliment. that's why he did it this way. How would you approach this problem with the Method of Inclusion/Exclusion? Thank you SOO much for your help!

how about this: It means if repeated samples were taken from the population and a mean computed for each samples, 90% of the samples would include the unknown mean between 1 and 9.

how is this interval useful to us? I can only make the claim that I'm pretty sure that the population mean is between 1 and 9

can you turn around and say that 90% of the samples of size n have a mean between 1 and 9?

wow.... your assumption of the setting of such statement is correct. thank you for answering, but your final statement at explaining this make it a little more confusing X_X
