JUST FLIPPING AROUND Created By: J. Whitlock, T.Garcia, and A. Aceves For: Ms. Wiltshire’s Class On: October 2002

3
Objective Construct a sample space using a tree diagram to determine outcomes and describe the probability of real world events.

4
Probability Defined The probability of an event is the ratio of the number of ways an event can occur to the number of possible outcomes. Number of ways P(event)= an event can occur number of possible outcomes

5
The Problem What is the probability of getting 2 heads when 2 coins are tossed?

6
Descriptions A sample space can be used to determine probability. A tree diagram can be used to create a sample space.

7
TREE DIAGRAM Step One-1 st coin List all possible results of tossing one coin. Coin 1

8
TREE DIAGRAM Step Two-2 nd coin List all possible outcomes for second coin next to each outcome of first coin Coin 1 Coin 2

9
Step Three Sample Space Construct sample space Coin 1 Coin 2 (Possible outcomes) Sample Space

10
Explaining the solution Count the number of items in the sample space-this is the possible outcomes (4) Count the number of outcomes with 2 heads-this is the correct outcomes (1) Write as a ratio: correct out of possible 1 out of 4

11
Explaining the solution (cont) To change the ratio to a fraction, write the 1st number as the top and the 2nd number as the bottom. (1/4)

12
Explaining the solution (cont) To change the fraction to a percent: divide move the decimal 2 places and add a percent sign

13
Step 4 the solution The probability of tossing 2 heads is 1 out of 4 ¼¼ 25% *HH* HT TH TT Sample Space
