Maths : Probability: Points to Remember

**Probability**

Points to Remember

• If we are able to predict the exact outcome of an experiment then it is called deterministic experiment.

• If we cannot predict the exact outcome of an experiment then it is called random experiment.

• Sample space *S* for a random experiment is the set of all possible outcomes of a random experiment.

• An event is a particular outcome or combination of outcomes of an experiment.

• Empirical probability states that probability of an outcome is close to the percentage of occurrence of the outcome.

• If the likelyhood of happening of two events are same then they are known as equally likely events.

• If two events cannot occur simultaneously in single trial then they are said to be mutually exclusive events.

• Two events *E* and *E*′ are said to be complementary events if *P* (*E* ) + *P* (*E*′) = 1 .

• An event which is sure to happen is called certain or sure event. The probability of a sure event is always one.

• An event which never happen is called impossible event. The probability of an impossible event is always zero.
