probability?
Theoretical PROBABILITY
Making predictions from Data
P (event) * number of trials = number of predicted success

PROBABILITY
Probability is the chance
of something happening.
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF probability...
EXPERIMENTAL
THEORETICAL

Experimental
KEY TERMS
Probability?
What is
OUTCOME - the result of an action. Ex: Flipping a coin and it landing on heads.

EVENT - an outcome or group of
outcomes. Ex: Pointer landing on blue is an event

PROBABILITY OF AN EVENT - a number that describes how likely it is that the event will occur. Ex: 1/2 OR 50% a coin will land on heads.

Theoretical
probability is in theory what would happen. There is
no guaranty
that the event will happen that way.

item is 1/4 times, and if you were to spin a white, it would be 2/4 or 1/2.

Question: If you were going to flip a coin 12 times, how many times would the coin land on tails.
Show the probability of all the possible outcomes.

The Counting Principal is multiplying to find the different combinations for an event.
Independent Event
Roll 7: Paper
An independent event is when the first event doesn't effect the second event.

EXAMPLE:
You're ordering a hamburger. You have 4 meat choices, 2 tomato choices, 5 cheese choices, 2 bun choices, and 2 lettuce choices How many different burgers can you have?
2 x 2 x 2 x 4 x 5 = 160
permutations
Not independent Event or dependent event
Permutations is the arrangement of objects in a particular order.
let's look at an example!
A not independent event is when the first event effects the outcome of the second event.
EXAMPLE:
COMPOUND EVENTS
two or more separate events
To find the probability of a compound event you have to multiply the two fractions of each event
example:

KEY WORDS
Experimental probability is gathering information from an experiment and using the outcome to find the probability.
I FLIPPED A COIN
I took a marble from a bag and didn't replace it. Then took another marble from the bag
