Identify the sample space of the following probability experiments using a tree diagram.
1. Rolling a six-sided die and tossing a coin.
2. Tossing four coins.
Classify the following statements as an example of classical, empirical, or subjective probability.
3. Jane tosses a coin 50 times and gets heads 28 times.
4. After watching the students in the hallway between classes your Math teacher states that about 15% of the
students are in violation of the dress code.
5. Sally needs to roll a four to win the game of Candy Land and has a 1/12 chance of winning on the next roll.
Find the probability of the following if there are 30 students in the class who have been numbered and
you use a calculator to generate random numbers between 1 and 30.
6. A number less than 10.
8. A number divisible by 3.
