1 13.1 Theoretical Probability

2 The overall likelihood, or probability, of an event can be discovered by observing the results of a large number of repetitions of the situation in which the event may occur. Outcomes are random if all possible outcomes are equally likely. The sum of the probabilities is 1.

3 Definition/Example : Trial: a systematic opportunity for an event to occur rolling a # cube Experiment: 1 or more trials rolling a # cube 10 times Sample Space: the set of all possible outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 of an event Event: an individual outcome rolling a 3 or any specified combination of outcome rolling a 3 or rolling a 5

7 Theoretical Probability: is based on the assumption that all outcomes in the sample space occur randomly. If all outcomes in a sample space are equally likely, then the theoretical probability of event A, denoted P(A), is defined by: P(A) = ___number of outcomes in event A___ number of outcomes in the sample space
