By the end of this worksheet you should be
able to:
a. Calculate the probability of a single event either as a fraction or a decimal.
b. Understand and use the probability scale from 0 to 1.
c. Understand, transform and use the equation:
P an event occurring + P the same event not occurring = 1
d. Understand, transform and use the equation:
Probability = number of favourable outcomes total number of outcomes
