An ____ is the result of a single trial of a probability experiment.
A ____ is the set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment.
____ is a device consisting of line segments emanating from a starting point and also from the outcome point. It is used to determine all possible outcomes of a probability experiment.
An___ consists of a set of outcomes of a probability experiment
An event with one outcome is called a___ event.
The event of getting an odd number when a die is rolled is called a___ event
____ probability uses sample spaces to determine the numerical probability that an event will happen.
The complement of an ____ is the set of outcomes in the sample space that are not included in the outcomes of event E. The complement of E is denoted by E (read “E bar”).
____probability is that classical probability assumes that certain outcomes are equally likely (such as the outcomes when a die is rolled)
___probability uses a probability value based on an educated guess or estimate, employing opinions and inex- act information.
Two events are____ or disjoint events if they cannot occur at the same time (i.e., they have no outcomes in common).
mutually exclusive events
_____is an arrangement of n objects in a specific order
