# appropriate probability space

Consider the experiment of choosing a whole number between 1 and 10, where the probability of selecting a number is proportional to the number itself; for example, the outcome 4 is twice as likely as the outcome 2, etc. Set up an appropriate probability space to model this experiment. Be as explicit as possible.
