Rules of probability The probability scale ranged from 0  (an event with no chance of occurring)  to 1 (an event that is certain to occur). The probability of tossing heads with a  normal coin is 1/2. The probability of rolling a 3 with a six- sided die is 1/6
We can use the rule of multiplication to determine the chance that two or more independent events will occur together in some specific combination. 1. Compute the probability of each independent event. 2. Then, multiply the individual probabilities to obtain the overall probability of these events occurring together. The probability that two coins tossed at the same time will land heads up is 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4. What is the probability that a heterozygous pea plant ( Pp ) will produce a white-flowered offspring ( pp ) (Remember flowers can self-fertilize) This probability is 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4.
