Principle
A student is to roll a die and flip a coin.
How many possible outcomes will there be?
Example 2A: Finding Permutations
How many ways can a student government select a
president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer
from a group of 6 people?
Example 3: Application
There are 12 different-colored cubes in a bag. How
many ways can Randall draw a set of 4 cubes from
the bag?
Check It Out! Example 1a
A red number cube and a blue
number cube are rolled. If all
numbers are equally likely,
what is the probability of the
event?
The sum is 6.

A DJ randomly selects 2 of 8 ads to play
before her show. Two of the ads are by a local
retailer. What is the probability that she will
play both of the local retailer’s ads before her
show?

The table shows the results of choosing one card from a deck of cards,
recording the suit, and then replacing the card.
Find the experimental probability of choosing a card that is not a club.
1. Find the probability of rolling a number
greater than 2 and then rolling a
multiple of 3 when a number cube is
rolled twice.
A drawer contains 8 blue socks, 8 black
socks, and 4 white socks. Socks are
picked at random. Explain why the
events picking a blue sock and then
another blue sock are dependent. Then
find the probability.
7-5 Compound Events
A simple event is an event that describes a single
outcome. A compound event is an event made up of
two or more simple events. Mutually exclusive
events are events that cannot both occur in the same
trial of an experiment. Rolling a 1 and rolling a 2 on
the same roll of a number cube are mutually exclusive
events.

Recall that the union symbol  means “or.”

having type A blood.
Explain why the events “type O” and “type A”
blood are mutually exclusive.

Each student cast one vote for senior class
president. Of the students, 25% voted for Hunt,
20% for Kline, and 55% for Vila. A student from
the senior class is selected at random.
Explain why the events “voted for Hunt,” “voted
for Kline,” and “voted for Vila” are mutually
exclusive.

the senior class is selected at random.
What is the probability that a student voted for
Kline or Vila?

7-5 Compound Events
Inclusive events are events that have one or more
outcomes in common. When you roll a number cube, the
outcomes “rolling an even number” and “rolling a prime
number” are not mutually exclusive. The number 2 is both
prime and even, so the events are inclusive.
Holt McDougal Algebra 2
7-5 Compound Events
There are 3 ways to roll an even number, {2, 4, 6}.
There are 3 ways to roll a prime number, {2, 3, 5}.
The outcome “2” is counted twice when outcomes are
added (3 + 3) . The actual number of ways to roll an
even number or a prime is 3 + 3 – 1 = 5. The concept
of subtracting the outcomes that are counted twice
leads to the following probability formula.

Example 3: Application
Of 1560 students surveyed, 840 were seniors and
630 read a daily paper. The rest of the students
were juniors. Only 215 of the paper readers were
juniors. What is the probability that a student
was a senior or read a daily paper?

Example 4 Application
Each of 6 students randomly chooses a butterfly
from a list of 8 types. What is the probability
that at least 2 students choose the same
butterfly?
P(at least 2 students choose same) = 1 – P(all choose different)
Holt McDougal Algebra 2
7-5 Compound Events
Example 4 Continued
P(at least 2 students choose same) = 1 – 0.0769 ≈ 0.9231
The probability that at least 2 students choose the
same butterfly is about 0.9231, or 92.31%.
