# Language of probability Worksheet

## 8 problems   Language of probability or probability language is a method to specify the chances of an event to occur. These include events such as ‘ chances of rain next week is 80 %’, winning a match next week is highly likely. Certain events have a probability of 1, whereas impossible events have a probability of 0. The ratio between the number of outcomes by the total number of outcomes is probability.

## Teaching Language of Probability Easily

• Experiment: A repeatable procedure that includes a set of possible results is defined as an experiment.

• Outcome: The possible result of an experiment is known as an outcome.

• Sample Space: Each possible outcome of an experiment is known as sample space.

• Sample Point: Any outcome due to an experiment is defined as a sample point.

Q. What is the probability of getting a sum of 6 when two dice are thrown at once?

Answer: There are a total of 36 possibilities when two dice are thrown at once.

Step 1: Determine all the possible outcomes.

So,

Possible Outcomes = ( 3, 6 ), ( 6, 3 ), ( 4, 5 ), ( 5, 4 ).

Total Possible outcomes = 4.

Step 2: Determine all the outcomes = 36.

Step 3: Use the probability formula.

Possible outcomes / total number of outcomes.

4 / 36 = 1/9.
