Unformatted text preview: P(February) = ? Theoretical Probability When you roll a dice (or a number cube) the possible outcomes are 1,2,3,4,5, and 6. We call all possible outcomes the sample space . Theoretical probability is calculated as a ratio of outcomes. Theoretical probability of x = x / sample space 1) What is the theoretical probability of rolling an even number on a number cube? P(even) = ? 2) Find the theoretical probability of getting a prime number when you roll a number cube. P(prime) = ? 3) A jar contains 20 red marbles, 30 blue marbles, and 50 green marbles. What is the theoretical probability of each: P(red) = P(blue) = P(green) =...
