Probability  predicting the possibilities of outcomes
A Graphic Organizer for Various Probability Concepts  as you can see, Probability and Statistics are related, although Statistics is another big area of study too. (Many would argue that the gray bubble labeled Experiments should be linked with Experimental Probability and not where it is found in this diagram).
Below are some Theoretical Probability examples for beginners
PolyhedronShaped Dice
1. What is the Theoretical Probability of rolling a 7 with two cubeshaped dice?
Look to the diagram on the right. Answer? 6/36 or 1/6 2. What is the Theoretical Probability of rolling three straight 6s with one die? Or all 6s with three dice? Look at the picture below.

How about the Probability of rolling a 4 using other Polyhedron dice, like the Tetrahedron, the Octahedron, and the Dodecahedron?
Spinners
1. What is the Probability of getting a Yellow with the Spinner below?
2. What is the Probability of getting an Odd Number? Answer: Yellow  4/8 = 0.5
Odd Number  4/8 = 0.5 
1. What is the Probability of getting a Yellow with this Spinner?
2. What is the Probability of getting a Blue? Answer: Yellow  3/8 = 0.375
Blue  1/8 = 0.125 
Deck of Cards
What is the probability of drawing a 3 of Spades from a deck of cards?
Answer: 1/52 or about 0.02

What is the probability of drawing 4 Aces from a deck of cards (no replacement)?
Answer: (4/52)(3/51)(2/50)(1/49) = 24/6,497,400 or about 0.000037

What is the probability of drawing first a King of Clubs and then a Queen of Hearts from a deck of cards (no replacement)?
Answer: (1/52)(1/51) = 1/2,652 or about 0.00038

A Couple of Miscellaneous Types
