fundamental counting principle | Uses multiplication of the number of ways each event in an experiment can occur to find the number of possible outcomes in a sample space. |

outcome | Any one of the possible results of an action. |

permutation | An arrangement, or listing, of objects in which order is important. |

probability | The chance that some event will happen. It is the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the number of possible outcomes. |

relative frequency | A ratio that compares the frequency of each category to the total. |

simulation | An experiment that is designed to model the action in a given situation. |

theoretical probability | The ratio of the number of ways an event can occur to the number of possible outcomes. It is based on what should happen when conducting a probability experiment. |

unfair | Not based on or behaving according to the principles of equality and justice. |
