objectives
Objectives
  • Determine the probability of a given event .
  • Determine the odds of a given event.
  • Use a Punnet square to determine probability.
vocabulary
Vocabulary
  • experiment
  • sample space - the set S of all possible outcomes of an experiment
  • event – any subset E of the sample space S
  • probability – success divided by total
  • odds – success to failures
slide5
A jar on your desk contains twelve black, eight red, ten yellow, and five green jellybeans.  You pick a jellybean without looking.

What is the probability that the jellybean is green?

slide6
A jar on your desk contains twelve black, eight red, ten yellow, and five green jellybeans.  You pick a jellybean without looking.

What is the probability that the jellybean is not yellow?

slide7
A jar on your desk contains twelve black, eight red, ten yellow, and five green jellybeans.  You pick a jellybean without looking.

What are the odds in favor of picking a black jellybean?

the sample space

slide13
A family has three children.  Using b to stand for boy and g to stand for girl, and using ordered triples such as(b, b, g) give:

the event E that the family has exactly two daughters

slide14
A family has three children.  Using b to stand for boy and g to stand for girl, and using ordered triples such as(b, b, g) give:

the event F that the family has at least two daughters

the event G that the family has three daughters

vocabulary16
Vocabulary
  • dominant
  • recessive
  • Punnett square
  • codominant
slide17

Mendel found that snapdragons have no color dominance; a snapdragon with one red gene and one white gene will have pink flowers.  If a pure-red snapdragon is crossed with a pure-white snapdragon, find the probability of the following.

  • a red offspring
  • a white offspring
  • a pink offspring
slide18

If carrier-detection tests show that two prospective parents have sickle cell trait (and are therefore carriers), find the probability of each of the following

  • their child would have sickle cell anemia.
  • their child would have sickle cell trait.
  • their child would be healthy (free of symptoms).
slide19

Tay-Sachs disease is a recessive disease. If carrier-detection tests show that one prospective parent is a carrier of Tay-Sachs and the other has no Tay-Sachs gene, find the probability of each of the following.

  • their child would have the disease.
  • their child would be a carrier.
  • their child would be healthy (free of symptoms)
