EXAMPLE 5e Suppose that n + m balls, of which n are red and m are blue, are arranged in a linear order in such a way that all (n + m)! possible orderings are equally likely. If we record the result of this experiment by listing only the colors of the successive balls, show that all the possible results remain equally likely. Solution. Consider any one of the (n + m)! possible orderings, and note that any permutation of the red balls among themselves and of the blue balls among themselves does not change the sequence of colors.

Following are some examples: 1. If the outcome of an experiment consists in the determination of the sex of a newborn child, then S = {g, b} where the outcome g means that the child is a girl and b that it is a boy. 2. If the outcome of an experiment is the order of finish in a race among the 7 horses having post positions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, then S = {all 7! permutations of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)} The outcome (2, 3, 1, 6, 5, 4, 7) means, for instance, that the number 2 horse comes in first, then the number 3 horse, then the number 1 horse, and so on.
