# Independent and Dependent Probability Worksheet with Answer Key

An independent and dependent probability worksheet is a useful tool in grade school. A probability worksheet is used to quantify probabilities in math classes. These probability worksheets have an answer key, and the number of choices given correspond to the possible answers.

The student works out the probabilities of the numbers that are on the answer key. For example, when there are five options, this is an answer key for four possible choices: three of the five. Students then identify which option they prefer, and their decision is used to produce a student rating. For example, for the five options, they give the number “3” to one student, and the number “4” to another.

A student is rated as taking a particular path or direction. In some cases, a student will get a positive rating if the number on the key matches the student’s current grade level. The student can still take an option with a higher grade level, but if the alternative has a lower grade level, the student will get a negative rating.

A student can be graded for a specific choice, a specific path, or a definite and determined option or result, no matter what the reason for taking the certain type of action or not. For example, a student may enter the school building without having her father’s permission. If the student leaves the building and gets into a car accident and is hurt, her father’s permission may come into play.

If the student does not leave the building, her father’s permission may not be necessary. Regardless of the situation, the student will get a grade for her choice. As long as the student gets a rating of “Y” (yielding a positive grade), her choice is considered good and valid.

When the choice is based on an already known fact, the student may still choose to go with an option with a lower grade level. She will also get a rating based on the possibility of being hurt. The student can still be graded for her choice, even if it is based on a specific fact.
