Two Dice Are Thrown. the Events A, B, C, D, E And F Are Described as : (I) Describe the Event:A And B, B Or C, B And C, A And E, A Or F, A And F - Mathematics

Two dice are thrown. The events ABCDE and F are described as :
A = Getting an even number on the first die.
B = Getting an odd number on the first die.
C = Getting at most 5 as sum of the numbers on the two dice.
D = Getting the sum of the numbers on the dice greater than 5 but less than 10.
E = Getting at least 10 as the sum of the numbers on the dice.
F = Getting an odd number on one of the dice.
 Describe the event:
A and BB or CB and CA and EA or FA and F

Solution

When two dices are thrown, there are 62 = 36 possible outcomes.
= Getting an even number on the first dice
    = {(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3),            (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6),
         (6, 1), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6) }
 B = Getting an odd number on the first dice
     = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3),
          (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6), (5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 5), (5, 6) }
C = Getting at most 5 as the sum of the numbers on the two dices.
    = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2),          (4, 1)}
D = Getting a sum greater than 5 but less than 10
    = {(1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6),
         (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (6, 1),            (6, 2), (6, 3)}
E = Getting at least 10 as the sum of the numbers on the dices
   = {(4, 6), (5, 5), (5, 6), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}
= Getting an odd number on one of the dices
   = {(1, 2), (1, 4), (1, 6), (2, 1), (2, 3), (2, 5), (3, 2), (3, 4), (3, 6),
        (4, 1), (4, 3), (4, 5), (5, 2), (5, 4), (5, 6), (6, 1), (6, 3), (6,5)}
Now, 

A and B = A ∩ B = Φ
B or C = B ∪ C
          = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 1), (2, 2),                 (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3),
           (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6), (4, 1), (5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4),

           (5,5), (5, 6)}
B and C = B ∩ C
              = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (3, 1), (3, 2)}
A and E = A ∩ E
              = {(4, 6), (6, 4), (6, 5), (5, 6), (6, 6)}
 A or F = A ∪ F
             = {(1, 2), (1, 4), (1, 6), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4),(2,5),                 (2, 6), (3, 2), (3, 4), (3, 6),
                (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6), (5, 2), (5, 4),                     (5,6), (6, 1), (6, 2),
              (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6) }
A and F = A ∩ F
              = {(2, 1), (2, 3), (2, 5), (4, 1), (4, 3), (4, 5), (6, 1),

              (6,3),(6, 5)}
