Compound events and sample spaces
Explore the notion of a "sample space". See a sample space represented as a tree diagram, table, and list.
Check if sample space diagrams match a compound event.
We're thinking about the probability of rolling doubles on a pair of dice. Let's create a grid of all possible outcomes.
In this example, determine the scenarios that are probable given the rolling of two dice.
Learn how to use sample space diagrams to find probabilities.
Use sample space diagrams to find probabilities.
Find the number of ways you can put four types of flowers into three types of pots.
We'll use a tree diagram to visualize and count all the possible outcomes. This helps us to determine the probability.
How many possible outcomes are there?
