Theoretical probability is what should occur (what you think is going to occur) and experimental probability is what really occurs when you conduct an experiment.

In a probability experiment, various outcomes are possible and the experiment is conducted to observe which outcomes occur. The experiment is performed repeatedly to collect data and determine the likelihood or probability of each outcome happening. The results of the experiment are analyzed to understand and make predictions about future occurrences of the event.

Probability determined as part of an experiment is called experimental probability. Probability determined by analysis of all of the possible and expected outcomes is called theoretical probability.

Yes.

It is the result of the experiment. It is the value of the observation.

No, it is only a probabilistic statement.

The probability that an event will occur plus the probability that it will not occur equals 1.

Probability determined as part of an experiment is called experimental probability. Probability determined by analysis of all of the possible and expected outcomes is called theoretical probability.

These events are complementary. Let P(A) = probability event will occur. Then the probability it will not occur is: 1 - P(A).

The answer depends on what the experiment is!

Experimental Probability

Experimental

The laws of probability predict what is likely to occur, not necessarily what will occur.

Yes.

It is the result of the experiment. It is the value of the observation.
