Compound sample spaces

VIDEO 9:10 minutes
Explore the notion of a "sample space". See a sample space represented as a tree diagram, table, and list.

Sample spaces for compound events

PRACTICE PROBLEMS
Practice checking if sample space diagrams match a compound event.

Die rolling probability

VIDEO 5:15 minutes
We're thinking about the probability of rolling doubles on a pair of dice. Let's create a grid of all possible outcomes.

Determining probability

VIDEO 4:19 minutes
In this example, determine the scenarios that are probable given the rolling of two dice.

Probability of rolling dice

PRACTICE PROBLEMS
Practice calculating probabilities in dice rolling scenarios.

Probability from compound sample space

VIDEO 5:03 minutes
Learn how to use sample space diagrams to find probabilities.

Probabilities of compound events

PRACTICE PROBLEMS
Practice using sample space diagrams to find probabilities.

Counting pot and flower scenarios

VIDEO 2:35 minutes
Find the number of ways you can put four types of flowers into three types of pots.

Count outcomes using tree diagram

VIDEO 4:31 minutes
We'll use a tree diagram to visualize and count all the possible outcomes. This helps us to determine the probability.

The counting principle

PRACTICE PROBLEMS
Practice counting possible outcomes in a variety of situations. These problems cover everything from counting the number of ways to get dressed in the morning to counting the number of ways to build a custom pizza.
