    Equalty Probability Problem

    Which of these events are equal? I say all of them, but not sure.

    a, A = {1,3}

    b. B = {x|x is a number on a die}

    c. C = {x| x^{2} - 4x + 3 = 0}

    d. D = {x|x is the number of heads when six coins are tossed}

    Re: Equalty Probability Problem

    It's definitely not all of them. If you roll a die, what can you roll? If you toss a coin six times, how many heads is it possible to get?
