### what do you expect vocab

Question | Answer |
---|---|

A diagram in which fractions of the area of the diagram correspond to the probabilities in a situation | area model |

The probability of getting one of two outcomes | binomial probability |

two or more events that have the same probability of occurring | equally likely |

intuitively the average payoff over the long run | expected value |

a probability that is determined through experimentation | experimental probability |

a game in which each player is equally likely to win | fair game |

this law states in effect that as more trials of an experiment are conducted the experimental probability more closely approxmiates the theoretical probility | Law of Large numbers |

a possible result | outcome |

The number of points a player in a game receives for a particular outcome | payoff |

A number between 0-1 that describes the likelihood that an outcome will occur | probability |

outcomes that are uncertain when viewed individually, but exhibit a predictable pattern over many trials | random |

the set of all possible outcomes in a probability situation | sample space |

a probability obtained by analyzing a situation | theoretical probability |

a diagram used to determine the number of possible outcomes in a probability situation | tree diagram |
