2. jim_thompson5910

first find out how many total different pizzas there are possible

3. jim_thompson5910

how do you do this? any ideas?

4. Bevy

no i dont thats why i ask

5. jim_thompson5910

ok, you have 8 types of crust, 4 types of toppings and 2 kinds of sauce so there are 8*4*2 = 32*2 = 64 different types of pizzas

6. jim_thompson5910

you just multiply out all the different counts to get the total number of possibilities

7. Bevy

ut you have to put it into fraction

8. dman

whats up bevy

9. jim_thompson5910

now there is only one way to get a pizza with thick crust, herb sauce and green pepper topping this is out of 64 total possibilities

10. jim_thompson5910

so that means the probability is 1/64

11. dman

its my grandpa the pic

12. Bevy

dude your awesome thank you!!!

13. jim_thompson5910

you're welcome

14. jim_thompson5910

just remember that in general probability = (# of ways to get what you want)/(# of total possible ways)

15. dman

thank you

16. Bevy

can you helpme on this one

17. jim_thompson5910

whats that

18. dman

me

19. Bevy

21. jim_thompson5910

how many different ice cream sundaes are possible here?

22. dman

6

23. Bevy

idk i try to work it out for myself and i dont know what to do and you ave to put it in fraction

24. jim_thompson5910

There are 6 types of ice cream, 2 types of sauce and 5 types of topping

25. jim_thompson5910

so there are 6*2*5 = _____ types of sundaes

26. dman

either 6/7 7/6

27. dman

what grade are you in bevy

28. Bevy

well jim_thompson5910, there are 60 but i have to put it in fraction and dman i am in 10th

29. dman

im daniel ousley from class

30. jim_thompson5910

ok so there's only one way to get what you want and there are 60 ways total so... probability = (# of ways to get what you want)/(# of total possible ways) probability = (1)/(60) so the answer is 1/60

31. jim_thompson5910

see how I'm getting this?

32. dman

33. dman

jk

34. Bevy

yeah heres one more if you want to help jim_thompson5910

35. jim_thompson5910

how many candies are there total?

36. Bevy

2400 i think

37. dman

2400 multiply

38. Bevy

yeah o did that daniel

39. jim_thompson5910

no need to multiply this time, just add up all the different types

40. Bevy

there are 16

41. jim_thompson5910

5 apple 5 cream soda 6 lemon 5+5+6 = 16 total and it also says that there are 16 total in the beginning

42. jim_thompson5910

there are 6 lemon candies so there are 16-6 = 10 candies that are NOT lemon

43. Bevy

so is it 1/16?

44. jim_thompson5910

close, but not quite

45. dman

1/16

46. Bevy

1/6??

47. jim_thompson5910

how many candies do you want? well you want 10 because there are 10 candies are NOT lemon how many candies total? there are 16 total

48. dman

BEVY!!! i love you BESTIEEE!! !<<<333 it's AShley ((=

49. jim_thompson5910

probability = (# of ways to get what you want)/(# of total possible ways) probability = (10)/(16) probability = 10/16 probability = 5/8 .... reduce as much as possible

50. Bevy

love you too ashley! i think your brother is stockin me

51. dman
