Example 1: Finding the Probability of Independent Events
There is a ten-sided cube: three sides are colored green, two sides are colored red, and five sides are colored blue
Find the probability of rolling a green, then red, then blue

Example 1: Finding the Probability of Independent Events
P(green, then red, and then blue) = P(green) P(red) P(blue)

Example 1: Finding the Probability of Independent Events Step 1: Find the probability of rolling one green side P(green) = 3/10 Step 2: Find the probability of rolling one red side P(red) = 2/10 = 1/5 Step 3: Find the probability of rolling one blue side P(blue) = 5/10 = 1/2

Step 4: Multiply each separate probability by each other
P(green, then red, and then blue) = P(green) P(red) P(blue)
