3
Kelly is playing a game using 8 number cards numbered 1-8. Kelly scores a point if she selects a card that has a 7 or greater

4
Example: Blindly selecting cards in Kelly’s game Probability experiment- an experiment where the exact results cannot be predicted.

5
Outcome- a possible result in a probability experiment. Example: Any of the numbers (1- 8) on the cards in Kelly’s game.

6
Sample space- a set of all possible outcomes in a probability experiment. Example: A sample space for this experiment is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 (the numbers on the card).

7
Event- a set of one or more outcomes in a probability experiment. Example: Selecting an even number or selecting a specific number.

8
Probability- a number greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to 1, showing the chance of an event happening. The probability (P) of an event (A) is… P(A) = Number of favorable outcomes Number of possible outcomes Example: Kelly is hoping to select a 7 or greater. P(7 or greater) = Selecting a 7 or 8 Number of possible outcomes This means the favorable outcomes are selecting a 7 or 8. Possible outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or ==

9
Likely- an event will probably happen. Since there are 4 blue sections and only 1 red section, it is likely that this spinner will land on blue.

10
Equally Likely- an event that is just as likely to happen as not to happen. Spinning a yellow or a green are equally likely.

11
Unlikely- an event that probably will not happen. Since green is only 1 of 11 sections, spinning a green is unlikely.

12
Impossible- an event that cannot happen. The possibility of spinning a yellow is impossible.

13
Certain- an event will definitely happen. The possibility of spinning a blue is certain.
