List all the possible outcomes of two events, using a probability space
Using a probablity space allows us to clearly see all the possible outcomes that could occur when looking at events. For this example I will show you how to list all the possible outcomes of two events using a probability space, shown below:
The outcomes of tossing two fair coins.

Heads 
Tails 
Heads 
HH 
TH 
Tails 
HT 
TT 
As you can see above, a probability space allows us to visualise all the possible out comes and then further allows us to work out the probability of each occurence. From looking at my probability space I can conclude the following;
The probability of getting two heads (HH) = 1/4
The probability of getting a tails and a head (HT & TH) = 2/4 = 1/2
The probability of getting two tails (TT) = 1/4
