In definition, probability refers to the measure of the likelihood of an event happening. The probability for any event occurring falls between 1 percent and 100 percent thus meaning that the interpreted meaning of a probability equals the subject meaning held of the probability (Grinstead et al, 1997). However, it is worth noting that the application of probability or assigning of probability to the events in the effort to gratifying the axioms of probability follows some rules or basics (Grinstead et al, 1997). One of the basics is the random variable that refers to the quantity with uncertain expected future values. For instance, it is of uncertainty to determine the price of the products in the near future given the changing dynamic…

toss is his or her probability. Probability is the chance of an event occurring at least once. There are two types of probability. Experimental probability is determined from the results of an experiment. It is the actual outcome rather than the expected outcome. Experimental probability can be determined using…

as numeracy. Age. Older individuals don’t understand risk information as well, both overestimate and underestimate probabilities (Fuller, Dudley, & Blacktop, 2001), worse risk comprehension than younger individuals (Fausset & Rogers, 2012). Much of the literature supports the idea that decision making effectiveness…

Probability can be defined as “The chance or likelihood of an event occurring” (Mirabella, 2011, p. 2-1). When looking at Joint Probability, it shows the likelihood of the Event A occurring at the same time as Event B occurs. Therefore, it is the probability of two or more specific events occurring together. Within my current assignment, I am looking at the probability of event A, student genders and event B, the student majors. For example, when looking at joint probability within the…

uncertainty. When an “outcome is the result of adding the outcomes of many separate performances, all in certain respects uniform”; in other words, when the frequency-ratio is known, then the experiment is named divisible, while a non-divisible or non-seriable experiment is one which “can be neither itself broken down into a number of uniform additive parts nor treated as part of a divisible experiment” (p. 8). In a non-divisible experiment the frequency-ratio standpoint has no actual sense. One…

1. INTRODUCTION Probability has come to gain importance as a content area of Mathematics that students need to have experience with in order to be well-informed citizens since its study “can raise the level of sophistication at which a person interprets what he/she sees in ordinary life, in which theorems are scarce and uncertainty is everywhere” (Cambridge Conference on School Mathematics, 1963, p.70; as cited in Jones, 2004). Since “[T]here is perhaps no other branch of the mathematical…

Joint Probability of Non-Independent Events For the joint probability of non-independent events A and B, we need to use a conditional probability. For P(Zargon-AND-Abduct), we cab use P(Zargon|Abduct) or P(Abduct|Zargon). P(Zargon) x P(Abduct|Zargon) = 8 /20 x 3 /8 = 24/160 = 3 /20 P(Abduct) x P(Zargon|Abduct) = 6 /20 x 3 /6 = 18/120 = 3 /20 Here is a different problem. The UFOs are invading, and the military shoots two special UFO missiles. The missiles blow up two of the UFOs. What is…

Probability Warning, quit reading now if you don’t want to learn about how important probability and different parts of it are. Still reading? By the end of this paper you will be able to identify what probability is and what the different parts are, how they can be applied in the real world, and why it is important in a career. Independent Events what are they? When two events are independent of each other hints the name, this means is that one event has no effect on the other event. An example…
