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

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

the probability of getting one of two outcomes(heads+tails) | binomial probability |

two or more events that have the same probability of occuring | 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 approximates the theoritical probability | Law of large numbers |

a possible result | outcome |

the number of points a player in a game recieves for a paticular outcome | payoff |

a number between 0-1 that describes the likely hood that an outcome will occur | probability |

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

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

a probability obtained by analyzing a situation | theoritical probability |

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