Principles of counting:Why its used: To deal with large amounts of data such as determining the numbers of possible combinations or event out comes Example: Anna's icecream store has 5 flavors 4 toppings and two sizes. How many possible combinations are there? Answer: 5 x 4 x 2= 40 there are 40 possible combinations.Probability: why it is used: To find the probablility of a desired event occuring. Probablility formula: # of ways desired result CAN happen over total number of possible outcomes. Example: on a six sided die you are wondering the probablity of rolling an odd number if you roll the die once. 3/6= 1/2 the probability of rolling an odd number is 1/2. There are two types of probability independent and dependant which are shown in the examples.
