Sequential Counting Principle Section 10.1 2

Tree Diagrams  Tree Diagrams are used to display all the possible outcomes of a situation. T H T H H T 3

Sequential Counting Principle  SCP If an event can occur in m ways and a second event can occur in n ways, then the sequence of two events can occur in m x n ways. 4

SCP  Fundamental Counting Principle If an event can occur in m ways, and then a second event can occur in n ways, and then a third event can occur in r ways, and so on, then the sequence of events can occur in m n n  r  … ways. 5

Exercise:  A bag contains 6 brown marbles and 3 white marbles. You are asked to draw 3 marbles from the bag without replacement. In how many ways can you draw 2 brown and 1 white in that order? 6 x 5 x 3 = 90 1 st B2 nd B 1 st W 6

Exercise: The Good Taste Restaurant has 7 entrees, 6 vegetables, and 9 desserts on its menu. If you want to order 1 entree, 1 vegetable, and 1 dessert, how many choices do you have? 7 x 6 x 9 = 378 9

In Connecticut, auto license plates carry 3 digits followed by 3 letters. a. How many arrangements are possible for the 3 letters? b. How many arrangements are possible for the 3 numbers? c. How many different license plates can be made using 3 numbers followed by 3 letters? Exercise: a. 26 x x = 17,576 b. 10 x x = 1000 c. 17,576 x 1000 = 17,576,000 10
