Unformatted text preview: Note: If a probability is close to 1, such as 0.9999987, or if it is close to another probability in a given problem, then you may want to use more than three significant digits. Always read any instructions in class. PART C: THREE APPROACHES TO PROBABILITY Approach 1): Classical Approach Assume that a trial (such as rolling a die, flipping a fair coin, etc.) must result in exactly one of N equally likely outcomes (we’ll say “elos”) that are simple events, which can’t really be broken down further. The elos make up the sample space, S . Then, P A ( ) = # of elos for which A occurs N ....
