Storyboard Text

• ﻿Hey, Johnny!
• Hey, Derek! ﻿What's your question?
• What can you tell me about probability?﻿
• Aw, what?﻿
• I am failing math, though..
• ﻿Sure! Probability is the likelihood of something happening.
• Mike, pay attention.﻿
• What's an example?﻿
• Might as well hear what the nerd has to say.
• ﻿﻿If you take out a red candy out of a bag of 4 different color candies, the probability is 1/4. 1 red candy out of 4 different color ones. Probability is expressed as a fraction.
• 4x-7=5, numbers, variables and operators used together to show the value of something is an expression﻿﻿
• But what if there are two or more events happening after each other?﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿That's what we call compound probability. It's the opposite of simple probability, with only one event.
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿I've heard of two types of compound probability. What are they?
• They are independent and dependent.
• ﻿﻿Independent probability is when there are two or more events happening that do not affect each other. ﻿ ﻿﻿﻿And dependent probability is when the events do affect each other.
• Wow! Now if I get a probability problem in math class, I'll know what to do! Thanks!﻿
• ﻿﻿Huh?
• Imagine you have that bag of candies. You take out one red one, put it back, and then take a blue one. Each time you take out 1 candy out of 4 total ones. 1/4. Multiply those probabilities together, and you get 1/16.
• However, let's say you didn't put back the red candy. Now, if you take a blue candy, it is 1/3, since one candy out of 4 total ones is gone. 1 blue candy over 3 total ones. Multiply 1/4 times 1/3 and you get 1/12.﻿
