Worksheet Overview

When two events occur, there are several possible outcomes.


For example, when a coin is thrown, it can land heads up (H) or tails up (T), and when a die is thrown it can land showing a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.


20p coin     one die


So when they are both thrown, the possible outcomes are:


H   1

H   2

H   3

H   4


H   6


T   2


T   4


T   6


There are 12 possible outcomes.

So the probability of getting a head and a 6, P(H6) = 1/12


Let's have a go at some questions, making sure that we write carefully organised, systematic lists when determining all the outcomes and don't just write out the outcomes randomly.
