The mathematics of chance

Tells us HOW OFTEN we can expect an event to occur

What is PROBABILITY?

Can be written as: fraction, decimal, percent or ratio

Definitions:

o Experiment: making an observation or taking a measurement o Outcome: one of the possible things that can occur as a result of an experiment o Sample space: all the possible outcomes of an event

Experiment: Tossing a coin

Sample Space Heads Tails

So what does this mean?

**Experiment: Tossing a Coin
**

There are TWO possible outcomes in the experiment of tossing ONE coin y The two possible outcomes are heads or tails y These two outcomes are

y y

Two outcomes are equally likely if they occur equally as often

Examples:

Since there are two possible outcomes to tossing one coin, then the probability of getting a heads would be: ½ or .5 y What is the probability of the spinner landing on red in the spinner below? y The answer is: 1/3!

a) b) c) d) 1/4 1/2 2/3 2/5

For an experiment of drawing a card from a standard deck of playing cards, what is the probability of getting a diamond?

a) b) c) d)

1/4 12/52 1/3 2/5

**What is sample space?
**

a) b) c) d)

The act of observing an experiment One possible outcome All the possible outcomes The study of chance

**True or false: The outcomes to rolling a 6 sided die are all equally likely
**

True y False

**True or False: All probability deals with equally likely outcomes.
