Unit 20 Probability of Two or More Events A Coin and a Dice

A fair dice is rolled and an unbiased coin is tossed at the same time. Complete the following table to show the possible outcomes: How many outcomes are there: a)in total b)that include a 6 c)that include a head d)that include an even number DICE COIN 12 3 4 56 H T H1H2H3H4H5H6 T1 T2T3T4T5T6 12 2 6 6

Unit 20 Probability of Two or More Events Two Dice

Complete the following table to show the possible outcomes when the two dice are thrown at the same time and their scores added: How many outcomes are there: a)in total b)that give a score of 9 c)that give a score of 6 d)that give a score of 12 DICE B DICE A 12 3 4 56 1 2 234567 3 45678 456789 5 678910 6789 11 7 89101112 3 4 5 6 36 4 5 1

The table shows the possible outcomes when two fair dice are thrown and their scores added What is the probability of getting a score: a)of 9 b)of 10 c)less than 6 d)more than 9 DICE B DICE A 12 3 4 56 1 2 234567 3 45678 456789 5 678910 6789 11 7 89101112 3 4 5 6

Unit 20 Probability of Two or More Events Tree Diagrams for Two Dice

Complete the tree diagram and use it to determine the probability of getting: a)2 sixes,b) 1 six,c) no sixes, when you roll two fair dice Six Not Six OUTCOMESPROBABILITIES Six, Six Six, Not Six Not Six, Six Not Six, Not Six Six Not Six

a)p (2 sixes)= b)p (1 six)= c)p (no sixes)= Six Not Six OUTCOMESPROBABILITIES Six, Six Six, Not Six Not Six, Six Not Six, Not Six Six Not Six + =

Unit 20 Probability of Two or More Events Tree Diagrams for Coloured Balls

There are 5 yellow balls (Y) and 4 green balls (G) in a container. One ball is taken out at random then put back. A second ball is then taken out at random. Complete the tree diagram: Y G OUTCOMESPROBABILITIES Y, Y Y, G G, Y G, G Y Y G G

Determine: a)p (2 yellow balls)= b)p (2 green balls)= c)p (1 green and 1 yellow)= Y G OUTCOMESPROBABILITIES Y, Y Y, G G, Y G, G Y Y G G + =

Unit 20 Probability of Two or More Events Miconceptions

Each of the following is a misconception (incorrect statement). Explain why. Misconception 1 When two fair dice are rolled and the numbers thrown are added, the probability of getting a total of 6 is because there are 11 different possible outcomes. Misconception 1 When two fair dice are rolled and the numbers thrown are added, the probability of getting a total of 6 is because there are 11 different possible outcomes. Misconception 2 If six fair dice are thrown at the same time, you are less likely to obtain: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 than 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Misconception 2 If six fair dice are thrown at the same time, you are less likely to obtain: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 than 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Misconception 3 If you choose 1 ball from each box, you are more likely t obtain a black ball from box A than from box B, because there are more black balls in box A. Box A Box B Misconception 4 You spin two unbiased coins. The probability of getting a HEAD and a TAILS is because you can get: 2 HEADS 1 HEAD and 1 TAIL 2 TAILS Misconception 4 You spin two unbiased coins. The probability of getting a HEAD and a TAILS is because you can get: 2 HEADS 1 HEAD and 1 TAIL 2 TAILS
