### Unit 7: Probability, Fundamental Counting Principle, Independent/dependent event

TermDefinition
Complementary Event Two events in which either outcome must happen, but cannot happen at the same time; sum of the probability and its complement is 100%
Compound Event Two or more independent events considered together
Counting Principle If event M has "m" possible outcomes and event N has "n" possible outcomes, then event M followed by event N has (m*n) possible outcomes
Dependent Event When the outcome of one event depends on the outcome of another
Experimental Probability What actually happens when conducting a probability event
Independent Event When the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of other events
Outcome A possible result in an experiment; the way an event turns out
Permutation An arrangement or listing of objects in which order is important
Probability The chance that a particular outcome will occur, measured as a ratio of the total possible outcomes
Sample Space The set of all possible outcomes of a random process
Simulation Carrying out a simple experiment to collect data
Simple Event An event that consists of exactly one outcome
Theoretical Probability What should happen when conducting a probability experiment
Tree Diagram A diagram shaped like a tree used to display sample space by using one branch for each possible outcome
Uniform Probability Model each outcome has an equal probability of happening
