1
Probability & Tree Diagrams OCR Stage 8

2
What are Tree Diagrams A way of showing the possibilities of two or more events Simple diagram we use to calculate the probabilities of two or more events

3
For example – a fair coin is spun twice H H H T T T HH HT TH TT 2 nd 1 st Possible Outcomes

4
Attach probabilities H H H T T T HH HT TH TT 2 nd 1 st ½ ½ ½ ½ ½ ½ P(H,H)=½x½=¼ P(H,T)=½x½=¼ P(T,H)=½x½=¼ P(T,T)=½x½=¼ INDEPENDENT EVENTS – 1 st spin has no effect on the 2 nd spin

5
Calculate probabilities H H H T T T HH HT TH TT 2 nd 1 st ½ ½ ½ ½ ½ ½ P(H,H)=½x½=¼ P(H,T)=½x½=¼ P(T,H)=½x½=¼ P(T,T)=½x½=¼ Probability of at least one Head? * * *

6
For example – 10 coloured beads in a bag – 3 Red, 2 Blue, 5 Green. One taken, colour noted, returned to bag, then a second taken. B RR 2 nd 1 st B B B R R R R G G G G RBRB RGRG BRBR BB BGBG GRGR GBGB GG INDEPENDENT EVENTS
