1 CHAPTER 1: PROBABILITY 1. Introduction to Probability L EARNING TARGET: I CAN DETERMINE THE PROBABILITY OF AN EVENT. What s the probability of flipping heads on a coin? Theoretically, it is 1/2 1 way to flip heads out of two equally likely faces that could show. How could you calculate the probability of flipping ten consecutive heads? What about the probability of flipping at least one head on ten flips? In this section you will learn how to determine probabilities for a variety of situations. Probability Probability is defined as the ratio of ways an event can succeed to the total number of possibilities: TA 1.1: Counting Probs 1.2: Combinations Chapter Overview: 1.: Intro to Prob 1.4: Extended Prob 1.5: Geometric Prob 1.6: Expected Value 1.7: Ch. Review # of # of successes possible outcomes Probability is often written as a simplified fraction, but it can also be written as a decimal or percent. Odds Odds is the ratio of successes to failures. ODDS = successes: failures In simple cases, probability and odds can be calculated by counting possible outcomes using a sample space. Example #1: If two dice are rolled, what is the probability of rolling a sum of 7? A sample space can be created showing all possible dice rolls: As you can see from the table, 6 of the 6 possible rolls result in a sum of 7, so the final probability is 6/6 = 1/6. 1
2 1. INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY Compound Probability Probability of Mutually Exclusive Unions (OR Problems) What is the probability of selecting a 5 or a black ace from a standard deck of cards? Since the events are mutually exclusive, there are six ways out of 52 to select a winner four 5 s and two black aces. A second approach would be to add the two probabilities: ) black ace ) Probability of Event A or B (Mutually Exclusive) Aor Probability of NonMutually Exclusive Unions (OR Problems) What is the probability of drawing a black OR an ace from a standard deck? Based on the previous example, you would expect it to be the sum of the probability of a black card 26/52 and the probability of an ace 4/52. However, selecting a black or an ace are not mutually exclusive events there are two black aces (the intersection of the two events). As a result, those two black aces are counted both with the black cards and the aces. To account for that overcount, the probability of the intersection must be subtracted from the sum: black ) ace ) black ace ) Probability of Event A or B (NonMutually Exclusive) Aor A Probability of Intersections (AND Problems): Dependent Events Determine the probability of selecting a King from a standard deck AND then drawing a second king without replacement. Method #1 Counting: There are 4 = 12 different ways to select a king, selected by a second king. There are = 2652 ways to select two cards from the deck. So the final probability is 12/2652 = /66. Method #2 Multiply Probabilities: You can also multiply the probability of the first event by the probability of the second event (given that the first has already occurred). This is: 4 King) another king) Probability of Dependent Events A and B (No Replacement) Aand B A is the probability of event A given that B has already occurred 2
3 Probability of Intersections (AND Problems): Independent Events Calculate the probability of flipping heads on four consecutive coins. Coin flips don t affect other coin flips, so the events are independent (so are playing card problems involving replacement). In general, try to write compound probability problems using AND or OR. Flipping four heads in a row is the probability of flipping heads AND heads AND heads AND heads: heads) heads) heads) heads) = (1/2)(1/2)(1/2)(1/2) = 1/16 Probability of the Complement of an Event: What is the probability of flipping at least one head if three coins are flipped? This COULD be solved by breaking the problem into AND/OR scenarios. However, it would take a lot of calculations, because it could be three heads, or two heads, or one head, plus there are several possible orders in which the results could occur: heads in a row) OR H, H, T) OR H, T, H) OR T, H, H), OR T, T, H) OR T, H, T) OR P (H, T, T) It would be very timeconsuming to make each of these calculations. However, it would be very easy to find the complement of the event that is, flipping NO HEADS: Probability of the Complement of an Event: 1  T, T, T) = T) T) T) = (1/2)(1/2)(1/2) = 1/8 If there is a 1/8 probability of flipping NO HEADS, there must be a 11/8 = 7/8 probability of the opposite flipping at least one head!! Conditional Probability Conditional probability is the probability of an event occurring given that another event has already taken place. This often involves looking at a subset of data to calculate the probability based on the given circumstances. For example, the probability that a roll of a die is a 4 given that it is known to be even is just 1/, since there are even possibilities, and one is a 4. For more challenging situations, the formula below can be used: Conditional Probability of A Given That B Has Occurred: A A For the above problem, the probability of the intersection of A and B (rolling an even 4) is 1/6, while the probability of event B (rolling an even) is 1/2. This results in (1/6) (1/2) = 1/.
