When we deal the problem of probability that involves two or more stages, it is frequently useful to use probability tree diagram. To construct the tree diagram, the probability written on each branch of the tree. The probability of an event for the experiment description by a tree is the product of the probabilities attached to the branches along the path representing the event. A tree diagram is the best way of finding events of a sample space with the help of a diagram.
For example:
Tossing three coins simultaneously, the probability tree diagram can be shown as below.
Second way of tree diagram
Sample space S = {HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT}

Let us represent the events getting a blue ball by B and a green ball by G. The probability tree diagram is as follows:
Now,
From probability tree diagram,
P(B/B) = P_{1}(B) × P_{2}(B) = \(\frac 37\) × \(\frac 5{13}\) = \(\frac {15}{91}\)_{Ans}
Let W denote a white ball and B denote a black ball.
The probability tree diagram is shown as follows:
Let Y denote yellow ball and B denote the blue ball.
Let us represent all possibilities by probability tree diagram as follows:
Let R, W and Y denote red sweet, white sweet and yellow sweet respectively.
The probability is shown in the following tree diagram:
Now,
Sample space (S) = {(R, W), (R, Y), (W, R), (W, Y), (Y, R), (Y, W)}_{Ans}
Let G denote a green ball and B denote a black ball. The probability tree diagram may be shown as below:
\begin{align*} {\text{The probability of getting both black balls P(B/B)}} &= P_1(B) × P_2(B)\\ &= \frac 9{16} × \frac 8{15}\\ &= \frac 32 × \frac 15\\ &= \frac 3{10}_{Ans}\\ \end{align*}
We represent all the possibilities by the following tree diagram.
\begin{align*} {\text{The probability occurring head in three times P(HHH)}} &= P_1(H) ×P_2(H)× P_3(H)\\ &= \frac 12 ×\frac 12× \frac 12\\ &= \frac 18_{Ans}\\ \end{align*}
Let K denote the event of getting a king and \(\overline{K}\) denote the event of not getting a king.
All the probabilities are shown in the following tree diagram.
Let R and B denote the red and blue marble respectively. The probability tree diagram is shown below:
\begin{align*} {\text{The probability that both marbles are of the same color P(B/B) + P(R/R)}} &= P_1(B) ×P_2(B) + P_1(R) ×P_2(R)\\ &= \frac 47 ×\frac 12 + \frac 37 ×\frac 13\\ &= \frac 27 + \frac 17\\ &= \frac {2 + 1}7\\ &= \frac 37_{Ans}\\ \end{align*}
Let B and G represent a boy and a girl respectively.
Then, the probability tree diagram is shown as follows:
Here,
\begin{align*} P(BBG) + P(BGB) + P(GBB) &= P_1(B) ×P_2(B) ×P_3(G) + P_1(B) ×P_2(G) ×P_3(B) + P_1(G) ×P_2(B) ×P_3(B)\\ &= \frac 12 ×\frac 12 × \frac 12 + \frac 12 × \frac 12 × \frac 12 + \frac 12 × \frac 12 × \frac 12\\ &= \frac 18 + \frac 18 + \frac 18\\ &= \frac 38_{Ans}\\ \end{align*}
Let R and B denote red and blue ball respectively. The probability tree diagram is shown as below:
