Lesson 4: Sample spaces & probability

# Sample spaces for compound events

Explore the notion of a "sample space". See a sample space represented as a tree diagram, table, and list.

## Want to join the conversation?

• Can you present the information of a sample space diagram differently?
.Are the different methods of showing this information
(except from the ones shown of course)
• Another method you can use to find the number of possible outcomes is to multiply the outcomes. For example, since there are 3 flavors and 3 different sizes you can multiply 3 x 3 which is 9, and also means that there are 9 possible outcomes.
• at what is that box thing Sal drew
• He put a box around the math to make it show out more than the other things he wrote.

• The probability of the first coming up a 3 is the sum was less than 7?
• Can't U just do 3 *3 because 3 *3 =9 . Since there is 3 options each ones of the 3 flavors
• "I encourage you to pause the video and work this out on your own"
• i don't have to the questions in the video are relatively easy LOL

• At , shouldn't Sal have said, "Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry?"
• I don't get the difference between the three. For example a + b + c = d. D is still the sum when a + c + b. Multiplication is the same. 8 * 9 * 34 = 34 * 8 * 9. Hope this makes sense.
• How many numbers are in 6 dices combined together?
• If it is a four-sided dice, then there are 24 numbers. If it a six-sided dice, then there are 36 numbers.
• has anyone ever thought of stopping this video and then going out to get cupcakes then come back and continue watching the video eating cupcakes?;)
• Write that down, WRITE THAT DOWN!
