Module 1

I am going to be telling you about module 1 that we learned in math class I will tell you about 3 different parts of it. probability, pemdas, and frequency tables. First I will tell you about probability then pemdas then frequency tables. OK, lets get going.
We learned about probability and how to find it out soo... lets say you had a bag of jolly ranchers and there were lets say 10 blue raspberry 7 cherry, 9 grape, 5 watermelon, and 3 apple we put them all in the paper bag. There are 34 jolly ranchers in all. You have 2 trails one 34 times the second 68 you pull 5 blue, 4 cherry, 4 grape, 3 watermelon, and 1 apple. So probability for this example would be for trial on for lets say cherry 7/34 ,blue 10/34,apple 3/34, grape 9/34, 5/34 for watermelon. So the probability is how many out of your total would you choose that flavor. So that's all about probability now lets move on to pemdas.
Pemdas is actually parentheses exponents, multiplication, division, addition subtraction.
This is the order you would do an equation like lets use this equation. 9x(6+5)-9 first do the 6+5 and that's 11 then 9x11= 99 then 99-9=90. pemdas is so you get the right order its the way to find the answer and that's pemdas!
Frequency tables are used for surveys like if you were taking a survey on favorite colors and you have to have 3 columns one would be color the other would be tally's and and the last column would be frequency they separate all the information we collect. So after that we know we can use a frequency tables often.
So now that I've told you about these strategies maybe you can use them in your daily life.

Love,
brco
