Example Question #1 : Design And Use A Simulation To Generate Frequencies For Compound Events: Ccss.Math.Content.7.Sp.C.8c

What is the probability of flipping a coin four times, with the coin landing on heads all four times, and rolling a  on a die? 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

There are two sides to a coin: heads and tails. The probability of the coin landing on heads is 

To determine the probability of the coin landing on heads four times in a row, we take the probability of the coin landing on heads and multiply it four times. 

Based on the question, we want to combine the probability of flipping a coin four times, with the coin landing on heads all four times, with the probability of rolling a  on a die. There are  sides to a die, and only one of those sides has the number ; thus, the probability of rolling a  on a die is 

We want the probability of all of these events occurring, so we need to multiply:
