Probability -How likely it is that an event
will occur
Vocabulary

Theoretical Probability

What “should” happen, mathematically
P(E) =
# of favorable outcomes
# of total possible outcomes
More Vocabulary
• Trials
• Each time an experiment is performed
•Outcomes
•Results of the trials
•Experimental Probability
•Found by actually observing an
experiment
•(what really happened)
P(E) =
# of favorable outcomes
# of total possible outcomes
Ex. 1 What is the probability of
rolling a 6 on a die?
P(6)=
1
6
Ex. 2 Out of 1100 people, 836 played a
sport. What is the probability that a
person picked at random will play a
sport?
P(play a sport)=
836 = 19/25
1100
Sample Space:

The set of all possible outcomes of an
experiment
How to find a sample space:
Tree Diagram
 Draw a tree
diagram to show
the sample space
of flipping a coin
and then rolling a
6-sided die.
