Today in Math, we did Number Of The Day, as usual. The Number of the Day is 7791.692. We also continue doing Probability.
Outcome means one possible result of a probability experiment.
Favourable outcome means a succesful result in a probability experiment.
The tiles S, N, O, and W are placed in a bag. What is the probability of drawing a letter W from the bag?
Another way to write this question is P(W).
1. P(W) = favourable outcomes
P(W) = 1/4
If they ask you in a sentence you must answer in a sentene too.
The probability of drawing a W is 1/4, 25%, or 1:4.
2. P(S or O) = favourable outcomes
P(S or O) = 2/4
You always need to simplify your answer.
P(S or O)= 1/2
P(S or O) =1/2, 25%, or 1:2
The letters M, O, U, N, T, A, I, N are in a bag.
A. Probability of drawing a letter N
