2 MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. Determine the number of outcomes in the event. Then decide whether the event is a simple event or not. Explain your reasoning. 8) You roll a six-sided die. Event B is rolling an even number. 8) ; Not a simple event because it is an event that consists of more than a single outcome. ; Not a simple event because it is an event that consists of more than a single outcome. C) 1; Simple event because it is an event that consists of a single outcome. ; Simple event because the die is only rolled once. 9) You randomly select one card from a standard deck. Event B is selecting the ace of hearts. 9) 1; Simple event because it is an event that consists of a single outcome. ; Simple event because only one card is selected.
