Sample Space and Outcomes

Vocabulary Experiment - Activity in which results are observed Each observation Each result The set of all possible outcomes of an experiment Sample space - Outcome - Trial -

Impossible Certain 0 1 Even chance 1212 UnlikelyLikely Probabilities never have values less than 0 or more than 1 (remember 100 % is the same as 1 whole). Roll a 7 on a number cube Win the lottery Roll a 3 on a number cube Girls going shopping Sun rise

ExperimentSample Space For the experiment to be fair or equally likely, the outcome has to be the same size  flipping a coin  heads, tails  rolling a number cube  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6  whole numbers  guessing the number of marbles in a jar

Outcome is the predicted result of an event Outcomes – ( Red, Orange, purple, yellow, green) 2. Spin this spinner 1. Roll a die – outcomes (1,2,3,4,5,6) 3. Toss a coin – outcomes (heads, tails)

Sample space is the ordered listing of all possible outcomes. 3. List the possible outcomes if you toss a penny twice. Toss one HTHT Toss Two HTHT HTHT Outcomes HH,HT,TTTH, This is a tree diagram
