1. Permutation
2. Combination
Problems related to permutation / combination

Probability
Probable ʹ ͞Chance͟
50% - Can Happen
50% - Cannot Happen
A Study of random and nondeterministic events/conditions.
͞Experiments͟ outcome
y Toss a coin
o Tail
y Picking a card
o 52 playing cards
y Rolling a die/dice
Experiment Outcomes Sample Space (S)
Tail
S = {H,T} or 2 outcomes
S = 2
2. Toass a die 1 2 3 4 5 6 S = {1,2,3,4,5,6}
S = 6
3. Pick a card deck of 52
cards
52 playing cards S = 52

y Subjective Probability
o Personal
o Guesses, instincts, intuition
y Empirical Probability
o Based on previous knowledge, events, etc.
y Classical Approach to Probability

o Find the prob that a no.2 i s picked form a roll of a die
o E = event that a No.2 is picked.
o P(E)=1/6 or 0
o Find the prob. That a face card is jacked from a deck of 52 playing cards.
o E = events that a face card is picked.
