comment Probability of Purchasing
let the event $A$ be such that it will contain the outcomes where only one person buys an electric dryer. Then $A = \{egggg, geggg, ggegg, gggeg, gggge\}$, right? So, $P(A)=.428$, right? I ask these questions, because putting things in terms of symbols helps me more often than not.

comment Probability of Purchasing
Do you happen to mean that, "at most two," is the complement of "at most one?" Because it doesn't take about "at least one" in part a). If is true, then you are saying that, out of everything that can happen (the sample space, which has a probability of 1), is composed only of the even that at most one person buys an electric dryer and at most two people buy an electric dryer? What about at most three people buy an electric dryer?

Well, how do we account for the fact, in your explanation, that $A_3$ contains portions of $A_1$ and $A_2$?

comment Sample Spaces--Outcomes and Events
Oh, wow. I see, now: the sample space is the set of possible championship and loser matches. I was thinking we had to list all of the different outcomes for the preliminary matches and championship matches, I didn't realize the preliminary matches were fixed, in that teams were assigned to play other teams. Thank you everyone for your help!

comment Sample Spaces--Outcomes and Events
@IshanBanerjee From my understanding, 2134 says that 2 fought 3 in the preliminary game, as did 1 fight 4; then, the winners of the preliminary matches, 2 and1, fought,, where 2 won.

Why can't both team 1 and team 2 advance to the championship game, where team one wins? That's what seems to be implied by 1234.
