measure of central tendency | number or pieces of data that can represent or summarize a whole set of data such as mean, median, mode, range |

outlier | a number that is considered extreme for a set of data and is separated from the rest of the numbers |

scale | the set of numbers used to label an axis when graphing |

statistics | the study of this topic deals with collecting, organizing, and interpreting data |

complementary events | two events are complements if the sum of their probabilities is 1 |

composite events | an event consisting of two or more simple events |

experimental probability | the ratio of the number of favorable results to the total number of trails in a probability experiment based on what actually happens |

Fundamental Counting Principle | multiplying the number of ways each event in an experiment can occur to find the total number of possible outcomes in a sample space |

independent event | two or more events in which the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of the other event |

sample space | the set of all possible outcomes of a probability event |

theoretical probability | the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of possible outcomes which is based on what should happen |
