Best Answer

Probabilities are given a value between 0 (0% chance or will not happen) and 1 (100% chance or will happen). You cannot have a negative percent for something that will not happen or a percent greater than 100 for something that will happen.

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.

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.


Why can't the probability be greater then one?
