Every day we hear probabilities: the weather tells the chance it might rain, the likelihood of winning the lottery, the possibility of having a boy vs. a girl. All these words describe a possible event. This is called an __________________________. An event is a collection of outcomes . The set of all possible outcomes is called a ____________________.

Probability is a number between 0 and 1and can be written as a fraction, decimal or percent. Probability = 0 means impossible, Probability = 1 means certain, Probability = 0.5 (1/2) means equally likely. The probability of an event is written as P(E) = _______. Theoretical Probability = Experimental Probability = You actually do the experiment and record data.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
