#### Presentation Transcript

**1. **Geometric Probability Objective:
Introduce probability concepts.

**2. **probability – ratio of number of ways the favorable outcome can occur to the total number of equally likely possible outcomes

**3. **

**4. **Rolling Dice. What are the odds of rolling a 6 when rolling a standard 6-sided number cube?

**5. **Rolling Dice. The odds of rolling a six are:

**6. **Rolling 2 Dice: What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7 when rolling a pair of dice?
Let’s make a table to help us.

**9. **How many favorable outcomes are there?

**10. **How many possible outcomes are there?

**11. **What is the probability of rolling a sum of 7?

**12. **Rolling 2 Dice: What is the probability of rolling a sum of 3 when rolling a pair of dice?

**14. **What is the probability of rolling a sum of 3?

**15. **Rolling 2 Dice: What is the probability of rolling a sum of 9 when rolling a pair of dice?

**17. **What is the probability of rolling a sum of 9?

**18. **Spinner What is the probability of the spinner landing on “1”?

**19. **Spinner What is the probability of the spinner landing on “2”?

**20. **Spinner What is the probability of the spinner landing on “3”?

**21. **Example D. What is the probability of choosing one of the longer diagonals? There are 3 longer diagonals and 9 diagonals total so…

**22. **Example E. What is the probability of selecting a point on segment closer to “A” or “B” than to “M”? 50% of the length of the segment is closer to “M” so…
