    What bit of probability are you struggling with? Usually just tree diagrams come up in the exams. We've done loads of edexcel higher past papers at school and that is what comes up. So is that what you are struggling with?

    And = times the probabilities together e.g. 1/3 x 3/5 = 3/15
    Or = add the probabilities together e.g. 1/3 + 3/5 = 5/15 + 9/15 = 14/15

    You do realize this is very dangerous advice?

    You can only multiply probabilities like that if the events are independent, and you can only add probabilities like that if the events are mutually exclusive, otherwise you have to take account of the the fact that you might be double counting if they occur together!
