Experimental and Geometric Probabilities.

You may wander...If I gather data and I put it on a graph: May I get the probability of segments of that data? What about figuring out the probability that the fumes of my car will pass through the catalytic converter reactive before being expelled to the air? Very short lesson, targeted to be expanded in the near future. Meanwhile, you might use the MARKER TOOLS menu to scketch some similar problems to the ones already given. You may do it right there at the screen using the space of the problem before the solution is given. Once completed, if you like it and want to preserve it for future use a snap shot does the work. Review the definitions associated to the problem given at the bottom of the webpage.

These are questions that have to do with experimental, and geometric probability. This lesson will present very specific cases that will enable you to build on them for more complex cases.

Lesson's Glossary

Dependent events: The outcome of a dependent event is affected by the outcome of the previous event.

Experimental data: It is the data collected from an experiment in statistics to specifically find the answer of a question.

Experimental probability: It is given by the ratio of the number of times an event occurs and the number of times the experiment is done to find the probability.
Results we get from an experiment.

Geometric probability: A probability that uses the ratio of segments, areas and volumes to find the probability of points, segments, areas or volumes.

Independent Events: If an outcome doesn’t affect the outcome of a following event, then the two events are independent.

Outcomes: The possible results of a probability experiment

Probability: The possibility of an event to happen. The probability of getting an even number when rolling a 6 sided dice is 50%.

Sample Space: All possible ways an event may happen.
