This worksheet is about working out the number of outcomes which are possible in different situations.

When we spin this spinner, there are 8 possible outcomes. When we throw this coin, there are 2 possible outcomes, heads or tails. When we throw this die, there are 6 possible outcomes. Example

How many possible outcomes are there when we spin the spinner and throw the coin?  For each colour, we can get heads or we can get tails.

The number of outcomes = 8 x 2 = 16
