Experimental probability is the ratio of the proposed outcome to the number of experimental trials.

P(success)= \frac{number \ of \ times \ the \ event \ occured}{total \ number \ of \ trials \ of \ experiment}

List three ways to express probability: _____________________________________________

What are compound events? ________________________________________________

What is the difference between independent and dependent events?



Independent Events:

P(A \ and \ B)=P(A) \cdot P(B)

Dependent Events:

P(A \ and \ B)=P(A) \cdot P(B \ following \ A)


What does it mean if two events are mutually exclusive________________________________________________________________

To find the probability of one or the other mutually exclusive or inclusive event, add the individual probabilities and subtract the probability they occur at the same time.

P(A \ or \ B)=P(A)+P(B)-P(A \cap B)
