In this section we reviewed sample spaces in which all outcomes were
equally likely to occur and did several worked examples. Worked
examples included looking at the probability of various
outcomes of rolling two six sided dice. For example, what is the
probability that the two dice sum to seven? We also looked
at similar probabilities for dice with n faces.
Other examples involved computing the probability of getting a
straight in a hand of Poker,
and determining whether we are more likely to see
an Ace of Spades or a Two of Clubs as the first card dealt after the
first Ace in a shuffled pack.
