Language of probability Worksheet

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.

  • 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. 




 

Probability Formula = Number of Outcomes / Total number of Outcomes.



 

 

 

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.
