## HMH Into Math Grade 7 Module 14 Lesson 3 Answer Key Find Experimental Probability of Compound Events

I Can find the experimental probability of a compound event.

Felix was attending an awards dinner and the menu had the choices shown for appetizer and entree. What is the sample space for his dinner selection? Sample space means the total number of possible outcomes.
The sample space for the dinner is {appetizer, entree}.

Turn and Talk The menu also had a choice of two drinks. When considering that choice, how does that affect the total number of combinations that are available to order?
The sample space for the dinner is {appetizer, entree, two drinks}.
It affects the total number of combinations that are available to order.
Before we have only 2 choices after adding the 2 drinks, we have the 4 choices.

At Felix’s awards dinner, T-shirts were being handed out to the award winners. The choices for the shirts are shown. The selection of a shirt is a compound event due to the available choices in different categories.

Connect to Vocabulary
A coin landing heads up when flipped or rolling a 6 on a number cube are simple events. A compound event is an event that includes two or more simple events.

Step It Out

Conducting a survey is a type of experiment. Each time a question is asked of one person counts as one trial. Each answer is an outcome. Compare the number of times one answer is given to the total number of times a question is asked to find the experimental probability that a new, randomly chosen person, if asked, will give this answer.

Question 2.
Guests at the awards were asked for their dinner order. The number of people who gave each answer are shown. Find the experimental probability that a dinner guest orders roast beef and salad. A. Find the total number of dinner orders.
15 + 32 + + 24 + 22 + 15 = Answer: The total number of dinner orders is 15 + 32 + 12 + 24 + 22 + 15 = 120.

B. Find the experimental probability. Given that,
Roast beef = 15
P (roast beef, salad) = number of orders for roast beef with salad/ total number of orders = 39/120 = 13/40

Question 3.
The T-shirt choices of some award winners are shown in the table. What is the experimental probability that an award winner does NOT select a medium green T-shirt? A. Find the experimental probability of choosing a medium green T-shirt. The number of green medium green T-shirts = 5
The total number of green T-shirts = 4 + 2 + 3 + 8 + 5 + 4 + 8 + 7 + 9 = 50
P(medium, green) = number of medium green t-shirts selected/ total number of T – shirts selected = 5/50 = 1/10 or 10%.

B. Find the complement of the event in Part A, the experimental probability of NOT choosing a medium green T-shirt.
P(NOT medium, green) = 1 – P(medium, green) The number of green medium green T-shirts = 5
The total number of green T-shirts = 4 + 2 + 3 + 8 + 5 + 4 + 8 + 7 + 9 = 50
P(NOT medium, green) = 1 – P(medium, green)
P(medium, green) = number of medium green t-shirts selected/ total number of T – shirts selected = 5/50
Therefore 1 – 5/50 = 45/50 or 90%

Question 4.

The table decoration choices are flowers or candles. The company packs party bundles and stores them in a warehouse, choosing the party favor and decorations for each bundle at random. Tatiana simulates choosing a bundle from the warehouse and checking its contents. A. List the compound events that occur when checking the bundles.

B. Describe the two choices that together make up each compound event.

C. How can you use a number cube and a coin to simulate the experiment?

D. Tatiana simulates 100 trials of the experiment and records the results shown in the table. What is the experimental probability that the next choice of a bundle includes pens and candles? Check Understanding

A restaurant manager records the choices made at breakfast. The table shows the average daily breakfast orders for toast. Question 1.
How many possible outcomes are in the sample space of toast choices?
The possible outcomes are (wheat, butter), (whites, butter), (rye, butter), (wheat, dry), (white, dry), (rye, dry).
There are 6 possible outcomes are in the sample space of toast choices.

Question 2.
What is the experimental probability that a new customer orders buttered white toast? Write your answer as a fraction and a percent.
The customer orders buttered white toast.
The number of possible outcomes is 6
The experimental probability of buttered white toast = number of events occurring/ total number of trials = 1/6. Or 16%

Question 3.
A tea bar offers tea in the varieties shown. A. How many rows and columns represent the sample space?
Answer: There are 3 rows and 2 columns representing the sample space.

B. How many possible outcomes are in the sample space?
Answer: The possible outcomes are (Hibiscus tea, small), (Macha tea, small), (black tea, small), (Hibiscus tea, large), (Macha tea, large), (Black tea, large).
There are 6 possible outcomes in the sample space.

Question 4.
Model with Mathematics Sabah works at a movie theater. One evening, she tracks the popcorn orders at the concessions stand.
A. Sabah sold 125 orders of popcorn. Complete the table to show the number of times a large popcorn without butter was sold.  The number of popcorns is 18 + 15 + 36 + 19 + 22 + x = 125
= 110 + x = 125
= 125 – 110 = x
x = 15
The popcorn without butter is 15.

B. Find the experimental probability of a new customer ordering a large popcorn without butter.
The large popcorn without butter = 15
The total number of popcorns = 125
The experimental probability of the popcorn without butter = number of events occurring/ total number of trials = 15/125 = 3/25.
