Vocabulary Words Combination - a grouping of items in which order does not matter. There are generally fewer ways to select items when order does not matter. Conditional probability the probability of event B given that event A has occurred. Dependent events the occurrence of one event affects the probability of the other. Vocabulary Words: These will be on the test Event an outcome or set of outcomes. Experimental probability - the likelihood that the event occurs based on the actual results of an

experiment experimental probability= Independent Events when the occurrence of one event does not affect the probability of the other Mutually Exclusive Events events that cannot both occur in the same trial of an experiment. Vocabulary Words Permutation - a selection of a group of objects in which order is important. Probability the measure of how likely an event is to occur. Sample space the set of all possible outcomes. Theoretical probability the likelihood of an

event based on mathematical reasoning P(event)= Experimental and Theoretical Probability Outcome each possible result of a probability experiment or situation. Event an outcome or set of outcomes. Sample space the set of all possible outcomes Probability the measure of how likely an event is to occur Theoretical probability the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes. P(event)= Experimental Probability

Experimental probability of an event the number of times that the event occurs. experimental probability= Finding Experimental Probability The table shows the results of a spinner experiment.

order of the objects is important. n factorial The factorial of a number is the product of the natural numbers less than or equal to the number. Combination an arrangement of items in which the order is not important. Fundamental Counting Principle You have a red shirt, a blue shirt, a pair of black pants and a pair of khaki pants. How many different outfits can you make. Red shirt and black pants Red shirt and khaki pants Blue shirt and black pants Blue shirt and khaki pants Total of 4 different outfits 2 shirts times 2 pairs of pants = 4 different outfits.

Fundamental Counting Principle The Greasy Spoon Restaurant offers 6 appetizers and 14 main courses. In how many ways can a person order a two-course meal?

A pizza can be ordered with two choices of size(medium or large), three choices of crust (thin, thick, or regular), and five choices of toppings ( ground beef, sausage, pepperoni, bacon, or mushrooms.) How many different onetopping pizzas can be ordered? Solutions: 2 Permutations Order Matter One item can be arranged one way: 1 permutation A Two items can be arranged two ways:

2 x 1 permutations AB and BA Three items can be arranged six ways: ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB, CBA 3 x 2 x1 permutations n Factorial The factorial of a number is the product of the natural numbers less than or equal to the number. 0! Is defined as 1 6!=6 x 5 x4 x3 x2 x 1=720 n!=n x (n-1) x (n-2) x (n-3) x x 1

Finding the Number of Permutations You download 8 songs on you music player. If you play the songs using the random shuffle option, how many different ways can the sequence of songs be played? 8!=8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1=40,320 Your Turn In how many ways can you arrange 12 books on a shelf? 12!=12x11x10x9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1=479,001,600 Sometimes you may not want to order an entire set of items. Suppose you want to select and

order 3 people from a group of 7. One way to find possible permutations is to use the Fundamental Counting Principle. First person Second person Third person 7 choices x 6 choices x 5 choices =210 permutations. Another way to find the possible permutations is to use factorials. You can divide the total number of arrangements by the number of arrangements that are not used. Notice: 4x3x2x1 will cancel so 7x6x5=210

Permutation Formula The number of permutations of n items taken r at a time. nPr= The number of permutation of 7 items taken 3 at a time. 7P3== Finding a Permutation How many ways can a club select a president, a vice president, and a secretary from a group of 5 people? n=5 since there are 5 people to choose from. r=3 since there are 3 officer positions.

find the number of combinations, the formula for permutations can be modified. Number of permutations= Because order does not matter, divide the number of permutations by the number of ways to arrange the selected items. Number of combinations= Combinations Formula The number of combinations of n items taken r at a time is nCr= The number of combinations of 7 items taken 3 at a time is C=

7 3 Using the Combination Formula Katie is going to adopt kittens from a litter of 11. How many ways can she choose a group of 3 kittens? Step 1: Is this a permutation or a combination? This is a combination since order doesnt matter. Kitty, Smoky and Tiger is the same as Tiger, Kitty and Smoky. Step 2: Use the formula C= 11 3

Your Turn The swim team has 8 swimmers. Two swimmers will be selected to swim in the first heat. How many ways can the swimmers be selected? C= 8 2 Identifying combinations and Permutations To determine whether to use the permutation formula or the combination formula, you must decide whether order is important. A. A college student is choosing 3 classes to take during first, second and third semester from the 5 elective

classes offered in his major. How many possible ways can the student schedule the three classes. Since the order does matter this is a permutation. Identifying Combinations and Permutations B. A jury of 12 people is chosen from a pool of 35 potential jurors. How many different juries can be chosen? Since order doesnt matter this is a combination. Your Turn A yogurt shop allows you to choose any 3 of the 10 possible mix-ins for a Just Right Smoothie. How many different Just Right Smoothies are possible?

Since order doesnt matter this is a combination. Compound Probability Compound event an event that is made up of two or more events Independent events an event that does not affect how another event occurs. Dependent events an event that does affect how another event occurs. Mutually exclusive events events that cannot happen at the same time Overlapping events have common outcomes Identifying Independent and Dependent Events

Are the outcomes of each trial independent or dependent events? A. Choose a number tile from 12 tiles. Then spin a spinner. The choice of number tile does not affect the spinner result. The events are independent. B. Pick on card from a set of 15 sequentially numbered cards. Then, without replacing the card, pick another card. The first card chosen affects the possible outcomes of the second pick, so the events are dependent. Your Turn You roll a standard number cube. Then you flip a coin. Are the outcomes independent or dependent events. Explain. They are independent because the roll of a die does not affect the flip of a coin.

Independent Events If A and B are independent event, then P(A and B)=P(A) x P(B) Finding the Probability of Independent Events Find each probability. A. Spinning 4 then 4 again on the spinner. P(4 and then 4)=P(4) x P(4)=( B. Spinning 5 then 3. P(5 and then 3)=P(5) x P(3)=(

Your Turn Find each probability. A. Rolling a 6 on one number cube and a 6 on another. P(6 on one cube and 6 on another)=P(6) x P(6)= ( B. Tossing heads, then heads and tails when tossing a coin 3 times. P(tossing head, then heads and then tails)=P(heads) x P(heads) x P(tails)=( Dependent Events To find the probability of dependent events you can use conditional probability P( If A and B are dependent events, then P(A and B)=P(A) x P(, where P( is the probability of B given that A has occurred.

Finding the Probability of Dependent Events Two number cubes are rolled one red and one blue. Explain why the events are dependent. Then find the indicated probability. A. The red cube shows a 1 and the sum is less than 4. Why the events are dependent. The events the red cube shows a 1 and the sum is less than 4 are dependent because P(sum<4) is different when it is known that a red 1 has occurred. P(red 1)= P(only 1 and 2 will meet the condition. P(red1 and sum<4)=P(red 1) x P( = ( Finding the Probability of Dependent Events Two

number cubes are rolled one red and one blue. Explain why the events are dependent. Then find the indicated probability. B. The blue cube sows a multiple of 3 and the sum is 8. The events are dependent because P(sum is 8) is different when the blue cube shows a multiple of 3. P(blue multiple of 3)= P= (3+5 , 6+2) P(blue multiple of 3 and sum is 8)= P(blue multiple of 3) x P Your Turn Two number cubes are rolled one red and one black. Explain why the events are dependent, and then find the indicated probability. The red cube shows a number greater than 4 and the sum is greater than 9.

P(sum of 9) changes when it is know that the red cube is >4. P(>4)= x P=five of the possible 12 outcomes are >9. (5+5, 5+6, 6+4, 6+5, 6+6) P(>4 and sum >9)=P(>4) x P=( Mutually Exclusive Events If A and B are mutually exclusive events, then P(A and B)=0, and P(A or B)=P(A) +P(B). Finding the Probability of Mutually Exclusive Events Student athletes at a local high school may participate in only one sport each season. During the fall season, 28% of student athletes play basketball and 24% are on the swim team. What is the probability that a randomly selected student athlete plays basketball

or is on the swim team? Because athletes participate in only one sport each season, the events are mutually exclusive. Use the formula P(A or B)= P(A) + P(B) P(basketball or swim team) = P(basketball) + P(swim team)=28% +24%=52% Your Turn In the Spring season, 15% of the athletes play baseball and 23% are on the track team. What is the probability of an athlete either playing baseball or being on the track team? P(baseball or track team)=P(baseball)+P(track team)=15%+23%=38% Probability of Overlapping Events

If A and B are overlapping events, the P(A or B)=P(A) + P(B) P(A and B) Suppose you have 7 index cards, each having one of the following letters written on it: A B C D E F G P(FACE), the probability of selecting a letter from the word FACE, is 4/7. P(CAB), the probability of selecting a letter from the word CAB, is 3/7 D F E G

A C B Consider P(FACE or CAB), the probability of choosing a letter from either the word FACE or the word CAB. These events overlap since the words have two letters in common. If you simply add P(FACE) and P(CAB), you get 4/7+3/7=7/7. The value of the numerator should be the number of favorable outcomes, but there are only 5 distinct letters in the words FACE and CAB. The problem is that when you simply add, the letters A and C are counted twice, once in the favorable outcomes for the word FACE, and once for the favorable out comes for the word CAB. You must subtract the number of letters that the two words have in common so they are only counted once.

P(FACE or CAB)=(4+5-2)/7=4/7+5/7-2/7=P(FACE)+P(CAB)-P(AC) Find Probabilities of Overlapping Events What is the probability of rolling either an even number or a multiple of 3 when rolling a standard number cube? Know You are rolling a standard number cube. The events are overlapping events because 6 is both even and a multiple of 3.

Need You need the probability of rolling an even number and the probability of rolling a multiple of 3 Plan Find the probabilities and use the formula for probabilities of overlapping

events. P(even or multiple of 3)=P(even) +P(multiple of 3)-P(even and multiple of 3)=3/6+2/61/6=4/6=2/3 Your Turn What is the probability of rolling either an odd number or a number less than 4 when rolling a standard number cube? P(odd or <4)=P(odd)+P(<4)-P(odd and <4)=3/6+3/6-2/6=4/6=2/3 Probability Models Two-way frequency table displays the frequencies of data in two different

categories. Conditional probability the probability that an event will occur, given that another event has already occurred Using a Two-Way Frequency Table The table shows data about student involvement in extracurricular activities at a local high school.

What is the conditional probability that a pet owner owns a dog and some other type of pet, given that they own a cat? .05/.27=.185 Modeling Randomness You can use probability to make choices and to help make decisions based on prior experience. A random event has no predetermined pattern or bias toward one outcome or another. You can use random number tables or randomly generated numbers using graphing calculators or computer software to help you make fair decisions. We will

be using a random number table. Making Random Selections There are 28 students in a homeroom. Four students are chosen at random to represent the homeroom on a student committee. How can a random number table be used to fairly choose the students?
