Sample Space : A set of all possible observable outcomes of a random phenomena. The sample space may be discrete S g ( 29 ( 29 or continuous. Set of Events : A set (collection) of one or more outcomes in the sample space, where . Probability of Events : A consistent description of the likelihood of observing an event. Th E E S P ⊆ g g ( 29 us a probability model is a triplet defined as , , . S E P 5 Probability Probability of an event estimates the proportion of times the event is expected to occur in repeated random experiments, and is denoted as ( ). Some properties: Probability values are always between A P A g ( 29 ( 29 ( ) 1 . Probability is a numerical value of the likelihood that an event will occur. 0 indicates an event that is never/impossible to occur. 1 indicates an event that is certain to occur.
