Identify the range of possible outcomes of combined events and record using diagrams or tables
(a) Understand that events are independent when the outcome of one does not influence the outcome of another, e.g. the gender of a baby does not influence the gender of a second one
(b) Understand that events are combined when the outcome depends on the separate outcome of each independent event, e.g. the likelihood that twins will both be girls
(c) Record the range of possible outcomes of combined events in tree diagrams or in tables
(d) Express the likelihood of combined events, e.g. what is the probability of getting a given total when using two spinners?

5 questions based on functional skills exam questions where learners find the probability of an event happening.
