Probability


1) What is Probability ?
The probability of something happening is the likelihood or chance of it happening.
A probability of 1 means an event is certain to happen.
A probability of 0 means an event is certain not to happen.
All other probabilities are given as a fraction between 0 and 1.

In a similar way, if the chance of an event happening is greater than an even chance, we say it is likely to happen.
