Probability & Area Objectives:
(1) Students will use sample space to determine the probability of an event. (4.02) Essential Questions: (1) How can I use sample space to determine the probability of an event? (2) How can I use probability to make predictions?

Probability & Area How can we use area models to determine
the probability of an event? - Using a dartboard as an example, we can say the probability of throwing a dart and having it hit the bull's-eye is equal to the ratio of the area of the bull’s-eye to the total area of the dartboard

Probability & Area = What’s the relationship between area and
probability of an event? Suppose you throw a large number of darts at a dartboard… # landing in the bull’s-eye area of the bull’s-eye # landing in the dartboard total area of the dartboard =

Probability & Area Real World Example: Dartboard.
A dartboard has three regions, A, B, and C. Region B has an area of 8 in2 and Regions A and C each have an area of 10 in2. What is the probability of a randomly thrown dart hitting Region B?

A dartboard has three regions, A, B, and C. Region B has an area of 8 in2 and Regions A and C each have an area of 10 in2. If you threw a dart 105 times, how many times would you expect it to hit Region B? (first we need to remember that from the previous question, there is a 2/7 chance of hitting Region B if we randomly throw a dart) b =

If you threw a dart 105 times, how many times would you expect it to hit Region B? (first we need to remember that from the previous question, there is a 2/7 chance of hitting Region B if we randomly throw a dart) b · b = 2 · 105 (Multiply to find Cross Product) =
