# Probability & Compound Events Worksheets

My students love theseÂ probability worksheetsÂ almost as much as I do. Â With this set of problems you will use probability and multiplication to calculate the likelihood of multiple events occurring. Â Why worry about the probability of flipping a coin and getting tails? Â Now you can see how likely it is that you’ll flip tails five times in a row, or make two free throws in a row, or pull three kings from a deck of cards. Â You won’t even have to make a tree diagram! Â The simple power of multiplication will help you unravel the mysteries ofÂ compound probability.

Probability & Compound Events Worksheet 1Â - This probability worksheet features 13 short word problems where you will calculate the probability of compound events happening, like missing a free throw three times in a row. Â Standard probability themes like coins, spinners, number cubes, and marbles are featured along with some other situations. Â Remember, there are 52 cards in a standard deck of cards!
