46 We can work out roughly what the probability/ likelihood/ chance of something happening is. We can use a probability scale to help us work out the likelihood of something happening, running from impossible to definite. Impossible Even chanceDefinite Not very likely Quite likely Pigs might fly It will rainI`ll catch a cold this year Understanding Probability Click to continue Lynn Court

47 The chances of something happening can be shown on a probability scale from 0 to 1. A probability of 0 tells us that the event will never happen - it's impossible A probability of 1 tells us that the event will definitely happen A probability of ½ tells us that the event has an even chance of happening Unlikely events are closer to 0 and likely events are closer to 1. Probability continued Impossible Even chanceDefinite Not very likely Quite likely 0½1 Click to practise Lynn Court
