1

## ____ as a general concept can be defined as the chance of an event occurring.

### Probabaility

2

## A probability experiment is a chance process that leads to well-defined results called outcomes.

### probability experiment

3

##
An ____ is the result of a single trial of a probability experiment.

### outcome

4

## A ____ is the set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment.

### sample space

5

## ____ 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.

### Tree diagram

6

## An___ consists of a set of outcomes of a probability experiment

### Event

7

## An event with one outcome is called a___ event.

### Simple

8

## The event of getting an odd number when a die is rolled is called a___ event

### Compound

9

## ____ probability uses sample spaces to determine the numerical probability that an event will happen.

### Classical

10

## 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”).

### Event E

11

## ____probability is that classical probability assumes that certain outcomes are equally likely (such as the outcomes when a die is rolled)

### Empirical

12

## ___probability uses a probability value based on an educated guess or estimate, employing opinions and inex- act information.

### Subjective

13

## 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

14

## _____is an arrangement of n objects in a specific order

### permutation
