15. A system is composed of 5 components, each of which is either working or failed. Consider an experiment that consists of observing the status of each component, and let the outcome of the experiment be given by the vector ( x1, x2, x3, x4, x5), where xi is equal to 1 if component i is working and is equal to 0 if component i is failed.
(a) How many outcomes are in the sample space of this experiment?
Sol: Each xi can take a value either 0 or 1. Since there are 5 values for i, the ...
