There are many such events. The probability of throwing a 1 or 2 on one roll of a die, for example.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How often is the probability of the complement of an event less than the probability of the event itself?

It depends on the events. The answer is 0.5*(Total number of events - number of events with probability = 0.5) That is, discount all events such that their probability (and that of their complement) is exactly a half. Then half the remaining events will have probabilities that are greater than their complement's.

When probability is less then 0 what happen?

Probability can not be less than 0 or greater than 1. A probability of 0 means there is no possibility whatsoever of an event occurring. A probability of 1 means that the event is guaranteed to occur no matter what.

Which of the following cannot be the probability of an event?

There is insufficient information in the question to properly answer it. You did not provide the list of "the following". Please restate the question. However, by definition of probability, a probability less than 0 (the event will never happen) or greater than 1 (the event will always happen) is impossible, so maybe that answers your question.

Is an event with a probability of 1 more or less likely than an event with a probability of 2?

It is more likely because it can exist. An event with a probability of 2 cannot exist.

Can the experimental probability of an event be a negative number.if not why?

No; because probability can never be less than zero.

What is the probability of rolling a number less than 3 and greater than 4 with one roll of a number cube?

The probability is zero. No number can be less than 3 and greater than 4.

Can a probability be more than 1 or less than 0?

No. A probability of 1 means something will definitely happen. There cannot be a greater certainty than that, so probability cannot be greater than 1. 0 means there is no chance of something happening. You cannot have less than no chance of something happening. So a probability cannot be less than 0.

What does unlikely mean in probability?

In common usage, unlikely means a low probability of occurrence. But as a term in mathematics, an unlikely event is not rigorously defined as a "low number" is subjective. Certainly, in a comparative sense, i.e. event A is less likely to occur than event B, we can state that the probability of occurrence of A is less than B.

What does less probable mean?

n event A is said to be less probable than an event B if the probability of A occurring is smaller than that of B occurring.

Why is the probability of an event cannot be greater than 1 while the odds of an event be greater than one?

"Probability" =the chance that an event either will or won't happen. Every event eitherwill or won't happen, so the sum of the two chances is ' 1 '."Odds" =the ratio of the (probability that it will happen) to the (probability that it won't).-- If (happening) and (not-happening) are equally likely, then each probabilityis 0.5, and odds are 0.5/0.5 = 1 .-- If (happening) is more likely than (not-happening) then probability of happeningis more than 0.5, and probability of not-happening is less than 0.5.Their sum is still ' 1 ', because there is a 100% chance that the event will either happenor not happen.But the odds are now (more than 0.5)/(less than 0.5) = more than 1 .

How can you tell just by looking that a fraction is less than or greater that a half?

If the numerator is greater than or less than one half of the denominator. For example, 7/16 is less because 7 is less than half of 16.

What are Synonyms of probability from likely to least likely?

certainty (no doubt), probability or likelihood (greater than 50% chance), possibility (greater than 0% but less than 50% chance)

Why probability is greater than 0 less than 1?

Probability is defined in such a way that 0 (or 0%) means that something is impossible to happen, and 1 (or 100%) means that the event is inevitable. Anything in between means that it MAY happen. Anything outside that range doesn't make sense.

Can a joint probability have a value greater than 1?

A joint probability can have a value greater than one. It can only have a value larger than 1 over a region that measures less than 1.

Describe a different event that has the same probability as rolling a 3 or less with a standard die?

The answer depends on what you are rolling to get a 3 or less.

How would you find the probablility of a number less than three or a number greater than five on a spinner that is numbered from one to eight?

There are 2 numbers less than 3, so the probability in this case is 2 in 8, or 1 in 4. There are 3 numbers greater than 5, so the probability in this case is 3 in 8. There are 5 numbers less than 3 or greater than 5, so the probability in this case is 5 in 8.
