how sophisticated do you need to go?
I got a rudimentary understanding of probability
6th grade level it doesn't make sense to me
give us a problem and lets see if we can work thru it :)
how many different words can be made using the words quick, slow, and sad and the suffixes -ness, -er, and -ly.
is the answer 9
so we have 4 words, and 3 endings. right? each word can be made 3 times; sadness, sadder, sadly... you do that 4 times and you get 12 words. theres a "tree" you can form" but Id have to go to paint to do it...
three words and three endings
the concept is the same tho....so yeas, 9 :)
this is difficult to explain without drawing pictures
I need to know the probability of two colored spinners and stuff like that
write it out, lets see if I can understand it :)
Great! Thanks for being so patient
a coin is tossed, and a letter is chosen from a bag . The letters in the bag are X, P, Z, K, M, A, E, Y 11. How many outcomes are possible? 12. Find P(heads, E). 13. What is the probability of tails and P, Z, or M?
I don't understand what the coin has to do with it
I'm never gonna get this
the coin is jsut an additional "variable" in it.... you start with the coin toss, which is 50% chance of getting heads or tails right?
ther are 2 outcomes from the coin toss, and 8 outcomes from the letters in the bag right? 16 outcomes total correct?
I think I was making it harder thatn it actually was
youre welcome, sometines all it takes is a fresh set of eyes :)
Can I just run this by you to make sure I understand everything
P(heads,E) I would assume means (100/2,100/16) sure run it by me..
50% and 100/8 actually... 12.5% P(50%,12.5%)
yikes I think I'm lost again
how did you get 100 over 8
I dont quite understand the notation P(heads,E) but to me it would mean that there is a 1 in 2 chance of getting heads: 100/2 = 50% and a 1 in 8 chance of getting an "E"; 100/8 = 12.5%
100 is just the "percent" number.... I use it to adjust for the "chances" into an actual percentage
what are independent vs. dependent events
Believe it or not I do well in math but this probability stuff is confusing to me
when 2 things happen without a cause, they are independant of each other. The snow falling in alaska and my shoe coming untied in NewYork are not related, they are independant of each other. the opposite of that is events that occur because of the other. like: The light was off, I stubbed my toe.
cool analogy but how do I apply it to this unit on probability
