#### notes

The likelihood of something  happening is called the probability.
Terms related to probability:

Experiment :
An activity which produces an outcome or result is called an experiment.

random Experiment :  An Experiment in which exact outcome cannot be predicted in advance.
For example:
1) rolling a dice
2) Drawing a card from well-shuffled pack of playing cards
3) Tossing a coin

Trial :  Performing an experiment is called a trial.

Event :  Each possible outcomes of an experiment is called event.

Probability of an event : In a random experiment if 'n' is the total number of trials, then the empirical probability of the event E is P(E).

P(E) =

"Number of trials happened in which event happened" / " Total number of trials"

i.e. P(E) ="Number of trials happened in which event happened" / n

The Probability of an event lies between 0 and 1 (0 and 1 inclusive).
