Math Missions: | 7th grade (U.S.) Math Mission, High school statistics and probability Math Mission |
Types of Problems: | 1 |
The topic Probability models appears under the 7th grade (U.S.) Math Mission and High school statistics and probability Math Mission. This exercise calculates empirical probabilities based on collected data.
Types of Problems
There is one type of problem in this exercise:
- Find the probability of the event: This problem provides some empirical data derived from an experiment. The user is asked to use this data to provide the empirical probability of an event.
Strategies
Knowledge of probability would be preferred but unnecessary. This exercise involves part of whole knowledge.
- Every probability will always be between 0 and 1.
- Empirical probabilities are based on experimental or collected data.
- The empirical probability that an event occurs is the number of successes out of the number of trials.
Real-life Applications
- Probability, along with decimals, percents, and fractions are used to determine the probability of a basketball player making a shot.
