SQA Higher Maths Tree and Venn diagrams

Tree and Venn diagrams

This page covers the following topics:

One way of showing combinations of multiple events is through tree diagrams. Each branch is labelled at the end with its outcome and the probability is written alongside the line.

Tree diagrams

Venn diagrams use circles to represent sets of outcomes. They can show intersections of outcomes (i.e. where both outcomes happen) and unions (the probability of either or both outcomes occuring).

Tiles with the following letters are placed in a bag: BANANA. A tile is taken, the letter recorded, and then replaced before a second tile is drawn. Calculate the probability that neither of the tiles are the letter A (hint: use a tree diagram).
