For lunch, in how many different ways could you choose a sandwich, side dish, and dessert?
In 1966, one type of Maryland license plate had two letters followed by four digits. How many of this type of license plate were possible? How many license plates would be possible if the state did not allow repeated numbers or letters?
How many ways can you file 12 folders, one after another, in a drawer? How many ways can you hang 8 shirts on hangers in a closet?
Ten students are in a race. First, second, and third places will win medals. In how many ways can 10 runners finish first, second, and third (no ties allowed)
What if in the last example the first three runners would get to go to the state championship. Then order wouldn’t matter. A selection in which order doesn’t matter is called a combination.
How many committees of 4 could you choose from 13 people?
An art teacher divides his class into five groups. Each group submits one sketch. She will select 3 of the sketches to display. In how many different ways can she select the sketches?
You will draw winners from a total of 25 tickets in a raffle. The first ticket wins $100. The second ticket wins $50. The third ticket wins $10. In how many different ways can you draw the three winning tickets?
On Thursday, there were 68 cars in the teacher’s parking lot. Fourteen of the cars were SUV’s. What is the experimental probability that a vehicle picked as random is an SUV? What is the experimental probability that the vehicle is NOT an SUV?
A baseball player got a hit in 20 of his last 50 times at bat. What is the experimental probability that he will get a hit in his next at bat?
On a multiple-choice test, each item has 4 choices, but only one choice is correct. How can you simulate guessing the answers? What is the probability that you will pass the test by guessing at least 6 of 10 answers correctly?
The set of all possible outcomes to an experiment or activity is call the sample space. When each outcome in a sample space has the same chance of occurring, the outcomes are equally likely outcomes. When outcomes are equally likely, you can calculate the theoretical probability of the event.
Sample space: n outcomes Event A: m outcomes
What is the theoretical probability of getting a 5 on one roll of a standard number cube? What is the theoretical probability of getting a sum of 5 on one roll of two standard number cubes?
What is the probability of being dealt exactly two 7’s in a 5-card hand from a standard 52- card deck?
What is the probability of being dealt 3 5’s and 2 aces?
What is the probability that a dart thrown at this board lands in the bullseye? 20 in 3in
What is the probability that a checker thrown on top of this board lands on a black square?
What is the probability a quarterback will complete his next pass if he has completed 30 of his last 40 passes?
What is the probability a quarterback will complete his next pass if he has completed 36 of his last 45 passes?
Find the probability of each event when rolling a standard die. P(3) P(2 or 4)
To find the probability of two events occurring together, you have to decide whether one event occurring affects the other event. * Dependent Events—the outcome of a second event depends on what happens first. * Independent Events—the first outcome does not affect the second outcome
1. Roll a number cube. Then spin a spinner. 2. Pick one flash card, then another from a stack of 30 flash cards. 3. Draw one marble from a bag, then replace it and draw another. 4. Draw one marble from a bag, then draw another without replacing.
Two events that cannot happen at the same time are called mutually exclusive. You roll a standard die. Are these events mutually exclusive? 1. Rolling a 2 and a 3 2. Rolling an even number and a multiple of 3 3. Rolling an even number and a prime number
* A student can take one foreign language each term. About 37% of students take Spanish. About 15% of students take French. What is the probability that a student chosen at random is taking Spanish or French?
Suppose you reach into this dish and select a token. What is the probability that the token is round or green?
