This eBook introduces probability in general, events with independent and mutually exclusive outcomes, exhaustive events, the relationship between the probability of outcome ‘A’ and the probability of outcome ‘not A’, experimentation, expected outcomes, expected numbers, sample space diagrams, tree diagrams, tables, the addition and multiplication laws and relative frequency.
This eBook is part of our range of Grades 6, 7 & 8 math eBooks that are aligned with the North American math curriculum.
Our Grades 6, 7 & 8 math eBooks comprise three principle sections. These are, notably:
•Number and Algebra
•Geometry and Measures
In addition, there exists a Publications Guide.
Our maths eBook are produced such as that as well as a Publications Guide, and three principle publications corresponding to the principle sections (Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measures and Handling Data) there are individual modules produced within each principle section which are published as eBooks.
Probability is a module within the Handling Data principle section our Grades 6, 7 & 8 publications. It is one module out of a total of four modules in that principle section, the others being:
•Collecting and Representing Data

About the Author
Upon writing close to 200 maths eBooks and receiving at times some poor reviews, I was shocked somewhat, not by the complexity, majestic beauty and ornate utility of maths, and mathematics, but by the degree of difficulty that so many students of all ages experienced when studying, attempting to study, reviewing or learning from the variety of available mathematical literature. This shock extended not only to the fields of education, but also to the domains of engineering, science, finance, commerce and trade. It was rightfully illuminated, and mindfully made clear that the vast majority of the population had great difficulty reading, assimilating and learning the fundamental principles of this noble subject. No wonder I was being misunderstood !!! Something needed to be done to change this. It was as if people where viewing and reviewing my maths eBooks through the wrong end of the telescope. - just as Dr Seuss indicated. I am, by way of education, training , learning and experience a 'doctor of electronics research', an 'engineer, Architect, scientist' with special interests in 'mathematics, research, communications, electronics, signal processing and internet mobility', language, literature, phonics, music and linguistics' as well as 'art, architecture, archaeology, history, geography and humanities' who has designed, developed, produced and published 5 (five) series of English language mathematics eBooks which are distributed via partnerships including smashwords as well as their distribution partners (Apple, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, et al). Our maths eBooks are of the highest academic quality and suitable as standard as well as supplementary texts for primary and secondary school students of the UK as well as the elementary, middle (junior high), high (secondary) school student market in North America. They are suitable for schoolchildren in the age range 5-18 as well as mature students, particularly those wishing to use SOA (state of the art) mathematical techniques and principles in the engineering, architectural, scientific, medical, financial, data and statistical fields of commerce and business. At Bristol University I studied for an honours degree in electrical and electronic engineering, obtaining a B.Sc.(Eng.) honours degree, and subsequently at Kings College London, University of London, I studied at the prestigious 5* centre for telecommunications research and received both the MPhil (Master of Philosophy) and PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree qualifications in electronics research. My PhD thesis' title was 'A Voyage Into Quantum Mobility'. I consider myself to be among the best electronics architects in Europe, but must acknowledge those learned gentlemen who heralded the birth of the Internet in the 1960's and earlier, as well as prior exponents of the 'Founding Fathers of Communication Systems', whose work and expertise I have been able to incorporate into my designs. Ta tu failte.
