If the probability of succeeding is 2%, then the probability of failing is 98%. The probability, then, of failing 75 times is 98%75, which is 22%.

You are dealt one card from a 52 deck of cards what is the probability of being an ace?

Probability = Chance of Success / Total Chances (Chance of Success + Chance of Failure) There are 4 aces in a 52 card deck and 48 cards that are not aces. Probability of being dealt an ace = 4 / (4 + 48) = 4/52 = .0769 or about 7.7 percent

What is the probability that 8 of the next 10 who take the exam will pass given a success chance of 97 percent?

To work this out, you first need to calculate the probability of the first 8 passing, and the final 2 failing. That is 97%8x3%2 which equals 0.070536902349392649% The next step is to find out how many different ways the people can be ordered. We have 10 in total and want to order 8, so the number is 10C8, which is 45. Multiply this by the above probability and you get 3.174160605722669205% Thus the probability that 8 of the next 10 will pass is 3.17%

Why cant a probability be greater than 1?

Probability is the chance something is going to happen. It has to be DO/PO DO= desired outcome PO= probable outcome. The probability can not be 1 because it has to be a percent chance of out of a fraction, which are both smaller than 1.

What is the probabilty that a coin will land on heads if flipped 8 times?

This is a probability question. Probabilities are calculated with this simple equation: Chances of Success / [Chances of Success + Chances of Failure (or Total Chances)] If I flip a coin, there is one chance that it will land on heads and one chance it will land on tails. If success = landing on heads, then: Chances of Success = 1 Chances of Failure = 1 Total Chances = 2 Thus the probability that a coin will land on heads on one flip is 1/2 = .5 = 50 percent. (Note that probability can never be higher than 100 percent. If you get greater than 100 you did the problem incorrectly) Your question is unclear whether you mean the probability that a coin will land on head on any of 8 flips or all of 8 flips. To calculate either you could write out all the possible outcomes of the flips (for example: heads-heads-tails-tails-heads-tails-heads-heads) but that would take forvever. Luckily, because the outcome of one coin flip does not affect the next flip you can calculate the total probability my multiplying the probabilities of each individual outcome. For example: Probability That All 8 Flips Are Heads = Prob. Flip 1 is Heads * Prob. Flip 2 is Heads * Prob. Flip 3 is Heads...and so on Since we know that the probability of getting heads on any one flips is .5: Probability That All 8 Flips Are Heads = .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 * .5 (or .58) Probability That All 8 Flips Are Heads = .00391 or .391 percent. The probability that you will flip a heads on any of flips is similar, but instead of thinking about what is the possiblity of success, it is easier to approach it in another way. The is only one case where you will not a heads on any coin toss. That is if every outcome was tails. The probability of that occurring is the same as the probability of getting a heads on every toss because the probability of getting a heads or tails on any one toss is 50 percent. (If this does not make sense redo the problem above with tails instead of heads and see if your answer changes.) However this is the probability of FAILURE not success. This is where another probability formula comes into play: Probability of Success + Probability of Failure = 1 We know the probability of failure in this case is .00391 so: Probability of Success + .00391 = 1 Probability of Success = .9961 or 99.61 percent. Therefore, the probability of flipping a heads at least once during 8 coin flips is 99.61 percent. The probability of flipping a heads every time during 8 coin flips is .391 percent.


Can probability be higher than 100 percent... Say you have 4 oil wells each with a 30 percent chance of hitting ...Isn't the calculated probability of one hitting 120 percent?

No. Probability is defined as a number between 0 and 1 (100 percent). If you have four oil wells, each with a probability of hitting being 30%, then the probability of at least one hitting is 100% - (100% - 30%)4, or about 76%.

The weather forecast says there is a 60 percent chance of rain today and a 40 percent chance of rain tomorrow What is the probability that it will rain today and tomorrow?

The probability that it will rain today and tomorrow is the multiplication of the probabilities of it raining both days. That is 0.6 X 0.4 = 0.24 So there is a 24% chance that it would rain both days.

When rolling a die what is the chance of getting a three?

A die can come up showing numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 and the probability of any number coming up is the same - one out of six. The chance of throwing a three is one out of six. In maths, this is called the probability of throwing a three, and given as a fraction of one, in this case one sixth 1/6. Chance and Probability mean the same thing, but chance is usually given as one out of six or two out of three or fifty/fifty for example. Probability is a mathematical thing and given as a fraction.A probability of 0 means no chance at all and a certainty has a probability value of 1. A mathematical probability of 0.99 means there is a 99% chance of success, or 99 out of a hundred.
