## Slides in this set

### Slide 1

Objective: To calculate probability

Tree Diagrams using a tree diagram.

Five balls are put into a bag.

Three are red.

Two are blue.

A ball is chosen at random and replaced.

A second ball is then chosen.

Draw a tree diagram to show all the possible outcomes and their probabilities.
