10-8 Counting Principles Warm Up Problem of the Day Lesson Presentation Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Warm Up An experiment consists of rolling a fair number cube with faces numbered 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12. Find each probability. 1. P(rolling an even number) 1 2. P(rolling a prime number) 1 3. P(rolling a number > 7) 6 1 2 Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Problem of the Day There are 10 players in a chess tournament. How many games are needed for each player to play every other player one time? 45 Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Learn to find the number of possible outcomes in an experiment.

All license plates are equally likely. Find the number of possible license plates. Use the Fundamental Counting Principal. letter first digit second digit third digit 10 choices 26 choices 10 choices 10 choices 26 • 10 • 10 • 10 = 26,000 The number of possible 1-letter, 3-digit license plates is 26,000. Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 1B: Using the Fundamental Counting Principal Find the probability that a license plate has the letter Q. P(Q 1 ) = 1 • 10 • 10 • 10 = 0.038 26,000 26 Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 1C: Using the Fundamental Counting Principle Find the probability that a license plate does not contain a 3. First use the Fundamental Counting Principle to find the number of license plates that do not contain a 3. 26 • 9 • 9 • 9 = 18,954 possible license plates without a 3 There are 9 choices for any digit except 3. P(no 3) = 18,954 = 0.729 26,000 Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Check It Out: Example 1A Social Security numbers contain 9 digits. All social security numbers are equally likely. Find the number of possible Social Security numbers. Use the Fundamental Counting Principle.

Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Check It Out: Example 1B Find the probability that the Social Security number contains a 7. P(7 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) = 1 • 10 • 10 • 10 • 10 • 10 • 10 • 10 • 10 1,000,000,000 = 1 = 0.1 10 Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Check It Out: Example 1C Find the probability that a Social Security number does not contain a 7. First use the Fundamental Counting Principle to find the number of Social Security numbers that do not contain a 7. P(no 7 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) = 9 • 9 • 9 • 9 • 9 • 9 • 9 • 9 • 9 1,000,000,000 P(no 7) = 387,420,489 1,000,000,000 ≈ 0.4 Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles The Fundamental Counting Principle tells you only the number of outcomes in some experiments, not what the outcomes are. A tree diagram is a way to show all of the possible outcomes. Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 2: Using a Tree Diagram You have a photo that you want to mat and frame. You can choose from a blue, purple, red, or green mat and a metal or wood frame. Describe all of the ways you could frame this photo with one mat and one frame. You can find all of the possible outcomes by making a tree diagram. There should be 4 • 2 = 8 different ways to frame the photo. Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 2 Continued Each “branch” of the tree diagram represents a different way to frame the photo. The ways shown in the branches could be written as (blue, metal), (blue, wood), (purple, metal), (purple, wood), (red, metal), (red, wood), (green, metal), and (green, wood). Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Check It Out: Example 2 A baker can make yellow or white cakes with a choice of chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla icing. Describe all of the possible combinations of cakes. You can find all of the possible outcomes by making a tree diagram. There should be 2 • 3 = 6 different cakes available. Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Check It Out: Example 2 Continued yellow cake vanilla icing chocolate icing strawberry icing white cake vanilla icing chocolate icing strawberry icing Course 3 The different cake possibilities are (yellow, chocolate), (yellow, strawberry), (yellow, vanilla), (white, chocolate), (white, strawberry), and (white, vanilla). 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 3: Using the Addition Counting Principle The table shows the items available at a farm stand. How many items can you choose from the farm stand? Apples Macintosh Red Delicious Gold Delicious Pears Bosc Yellow Bartlett Red Bartlett Squash Acorn Hubbard None of the lists contains identical items, so use the Addition Counting Principle. Total Choices Course 3 = Apples + Pears + Squash 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 3 Continued T = 3 + 3 + 2 =8 There are 8 items to choose from. Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Check It Out: Example 3 The table shows the items available at a clothing store. How many items can you choose from the clothing store? T-Shirts Long Sleeve Shirt Sleeve Pocket Sweaters Wool Cotton Polyester Cashmere Pants Denim Khaki None of the lists contains identical items, so use the Addition Counting Principle. Course 3 10-8 Counting Principles Additional Example 3 Continued Total Choices = T-shirts + Sweaters + Pants T = 3 + 4 + 2 =9 There are 9 items to choose from.
