What is the probability of making three free throws in a row (LeBron literally asks this in this tutorial). In this tutorial, we'll explore compound events happening where the probability of one event is not dependent on the outcome of another (compound, independent, events).

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

Example: Probability through counting outcomes
