1) What is a probability experiment? A probability experiment is a chance process that leads to well-defined outcomes. 2) Define sample space. The set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment is called a sample space. 3) What is the difference between an outcome and an event? An outcome is the result of a single trial of a probability experiment, but an event can consist of more than one outcome. 4) What are equally likely events? Equally likely events have the same probability of occurring. 5) What is the range of the values of the probability of an event? The range of values is 0 to 1 inclusive. 6) When an event is certain to occur, what is its probability? 1

7) If an event cannot happen, what value is assigned to its probability? 0 8) What is the sum of the probabilities of all the outcomes in a sample space? 1
