## When a dice is rolled the six possible out comes are?

When a die is rolled, then the six possible outcomes are **1,2,3,4,5 and 6**.

## When a dice is rolled the six possible outcomes are dash?

The set of all the possible outcomes is called the **sample space**. Thus the numbers on the die become the set. The sample space has six possible outcomes: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}.

## When you spin the wheel what are the possible outcomes?

(a) There are four letters A, B, C and D in a spinning wheel. So there are **4 outcomes**. (b) When two coins are tossed together. There are four possible outcomes HH, HT, TH, TT.

## What do you call the set of all possible outcomes of an experiment?

A set of all possible outcomes of an experiment is called **a sample space**. We shall denote the sample space by S. Hence, that the sample space is simply the set of all possible sample points of a given experiment.

## What is the probability of 8?

Probabilities for the two dice

Total | Number of combinations | Probability |
---|---|---|

7 | 6 | 16.67% |

8 | 5 |
13.89% |

9 | 4 | 11.11% |

10 | 3 | 8.33% |

## What is a list of all possible outcomes called?

The list of all the possible outcomes is called **the SAMPLE SPACE (S)**. An event is any outcome or set of outcomes of a random phenomenon. An event must be present in the sample space.

## How many possible outcomes are there?

The total number of possible outcomes are **6**, 3 ∙ 2 = 6. This principle is called the fundamental counting principle and the rule is as follows. If event x (in this case the chicken, the beef and the vegetables) can occur in x ways.
