# Probability

## How Likely

In the real world, events can not be predicted with 100% certainty. The best we can do is say how likely they are to happen, using the concept of probability. ### Tossing a Coin

When a coin is tossed, there are two possible outcomes:

• tails (T).

We say that the probability of the coin landing H is 1/2.

Similarly, the probability of the coin landing T is 1/2. ### Throwing Dice

When a single die is thrown, there are six possible outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

The probability of throwing any one of these numbers is 1/6.

## Probability

In general:

 Probability of an event happening = Number of ways it can happen Total number of outcomes

Example: there are 5 marbles in a bag: 3 are red, and 2 are blue. What is the probability that a blue marble will be picked?

Number of ways it can happen: 2 (ther are 2 blues)

Total number of outcomes: 5 (there are 5 marbles in total)

So the probability is 2/5 = 0.4
