1 10.5 a.1, a.5 TEKS Find Probabilities of Independent and Dependent Events Before You found probabilities of compound events. Now You will examine independent and dependent events. Why? So you can formulate coaching strategies, as in Ex. 41. Key Vocabulary independent events dependent events conditional probability Two events are independent if the occurrence of one has no effect on the occurrence of the other. For instance, if a coin is tossed twice, the outcome of the first toss (heads or tails) has no effect on the outcome of the second toss. KEY CONCEPT For Your Notebook Probability of Independent Events If A and B are independent events, then the probability that both A and B occur is: P(A and B) 5 P(A) p P(B) More generally, the probability that n independent events occur is the product of the n probabilities of the individual events. E XAMPLE 1 TAKS PRACTICE: Multiple Choice For a fundraiser, a class sells 200 raffle tickets for a mall gift certificate and 250 raffle tickets for a booklet of movie passes. Juan buys 5 raffle tickets for each prize. What is the probability that Juan wins both prizes? A 1 } 6000 B 1 } 2000 C 1 } 450 D 1 } 90 Let events A and B be getting the winning ticket for the gift certificate and movie passes, respectively. The events are independent. So, the probability is: P(A and B) 5 P(A) p P(B) 5 5 } 200 p 5 } } 40 p 1 } } 2000 c The correct answer is B. A B C D GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 1. WHAT IF? In Example 1, what is the probability that you win the mall gift certificate but not the booklet of movie passes? 10.5 Find Probabilities of Independent and Dependent Events 717

2 E XAMPLE 2 Find probability of three independent events RACING In a BMX meet, each heat consists of 8 competitors who are randomly assigned lanes from 1 to 8. What is the probability that a racer will draw lane 8 in the 3 heats in which the racer participates? Let events A, B, and C be drawing lane 8 in the first, second, and third heats, respectively. The three events are independent. So, the probability is: P(A and B and C) 5 P(A) p P(B) p P(C) 5 1 } 8 p 1 } 8 p 1 } } 512 ø E XAMPLE 3 Use a complement to find a probability MUSIC While you are riding to school, your portable CD player randomly plays 4 different songs from a CD with 16 songs on it. What is the probability that you will hear your favorite song on the CD at least once during the week (5 days)? For one day, the probability of not hearing your favorite song is: P(not hearing song) 5 15C 4 } 16 C 4 Hearing or not hearing your favorite song on Monday, on Tuesday, and so on are independent events. So, the probability of hearing the song at least once is: P(hearing song) [P(not hearing song)] C 4 } 16 C ø GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 2. SPINNER A spinner is divided into ten equal regions numbered 1 to 10. What is the probability that 3 consecutive spins result in perfect squares? 3. WHAT IF? In Example 3, how does your answer change if the CD has only 12 songs on it? CONDITIONAL PROBABILITIES The conditional probability of B given A can be greater than, less than, or equal to the probability of B. DEPENDENT EVENTS Two events A and B are dependent events if the occurrence of one affects the occurrence of the other. The probability that B will occur given that A has occurred is called the conditional probability of B given A and is written as P(B A). KEY CONCEPT For Your Notebook Probability of Dependent Events If A and B are dependent events, then the probability that both A and B occur is: P(A and B) 5 P(A) p P(B A) 718 Chapter 10 Counting Methods and Probability

3 E XAMPLE 4 Find a conditional probability WEATHER The table shows the numbers of tropical cyclones that formed during the hurricane seasons from 1988 to Use the table to estimate (a) the probability that a future tropical cyclone is a hurricane and (b) the probability that a future tropical cyclone in the Northern Hemisphere is a hurricane. Type of Tropical Cyclone Northern Hemisphere Southern Hemisphere Tropical depression Tropical storm Hurricane a. P(hurricane) 5 Number of hurricanes }}} Total number of cyclones 5 } 760 ø b. P(hurricane Northern Hemisphere) Number of hurricanes in Northern Hemisphere 5}}}} Total number of cyclones in Northern Hemisphere 5 } 545 ø E XAMPLE 5 Comparing independent and dependent events SELECTING CARDS You randomly select two cards from a standard deck of 52 cards. What is the probability that the first card is not a heart and the second is a heart if (a) you replace the first card before selecting the second, and (b) you do not replace the first card? AVOID ERRORS It is important to first determine whether A and B are independent or dependent in order to calculate P(A and B) correctly. Let A be the first card is not a heart and B be the second card is a heart. a. If you replace the first card before selecting the second card, then A and B are independent events. So, the probability is: P(A and B) 5 P(A) p P(B) 5 39 } 52 p 13 } } 16 ø b. If you do not replace the first card before selecting the second card, then A and B are dependent events. So, the probability is: P(A and B) 5 P(A) p P(B A) 5 39 } 52 p 13 } } 68 ø GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 4 and 5 4. WHAT IF? Use the information in Example 4 to find (a) the probability that a future tropical cyclone is a tropical storm and (b) the probability that a future tropical cyclone in the Southern Hemisphere is a tropical storm. Find the probability of drawing the given cards from a standard deck of 52 cards (a) with replacement and (b) without replacement. 5. A spade, then a club 6.

4 THREE OR MORE DEPENDENT EVENTS The formula for finding probabilities of dependent events can be extended to three or more events, as shown below. E XAMPLE 6 Find probability of three dependent events ANOTHER WAY You can also use the fundamental counting principle. P(all different) different costumes 5}} possible costumes 15 p 14 p 13 5} ø p 15 p 15 COSTUME PARTY You and two friends go to the same store at different times to buy costumes for a costume party. There are 15 different costumes at the store, and the store has at least 3 duplicates of each costume. What is the probability that you each choose different costumes? Let event A be that you choose a costume, let event B be that one friend chooses a different costume, and let event C be that your other friend chooses a third costume. These events are dependent. So, the probability is: P(A and B and C) 5 P(A) p P(B A) p P(C A and B) 5 15 } 15 p 14 } 15 p 13 } } 225 ø E XAMPLE 7 TAKS REASONING: Multi-Step Problem SAFETY Using observations made of drivers arriving at a certain high school, a study reports that 69% of adults wear seat belts while driving. A high school student also in the car wears a seat belt 66% of the time when the adult wears a seat belt, and 26% of the time when the adult does not wear a seat belt. What is the probability that a high school student in the study wears a seat belt? A probability tree diagram, where the probabilities are given along the branches, can help you solve the problem. Notice that the probabilities for all branches from the same point must sum to 1. So, the probability that a high school student wears a seat belt is: P(C) 5 P(A and C) 1 P(B and C) 5 P(A) p P(C A) 1 P(B) p P(C B) 5 (0.69)(0.66) 1 (0.31)(0.26) Chapter 10 Counting Methods and Probability
