No .o f Po ssib leOu tco mes
Use the above results to calculate the probability of occurrence of simple events.
Define the experimental probability of the event E happening as
No. of times event E occurs
Total No. of times of performing the experiment
Use the above results to calculate the probability of occurrence of simple events.
State that for any event E, 0 P(E) 1.
P(E)=0 if and only if the event E cannot possibly occur.
P(E)=1 if and only if the event E will certainly occur.
