MDM4U Probability with equally-likely outcomes 2017-10-02


When each outcome in a sample space is equally likely,

P(x)=\frac{1}{n(S)}

for each x \in S .

For any event A \subseteq S ,

P(A) = \frac{n(A)}{n(S)}

We often say something like, “We get the probability by counting the number of ways the event can happen and dividing by the number of ways anything can happen.”
