Theoretical Probability Objective: Apply theoretical probability to predict, compare, and replicate experiments.

Slide 4:

Vocabulary
Outcome – a possible result of an experiment.
Sample Space – The set of all possible outcomes.
Theoretical Probability – a comparison of the number of favorable outcomes to the number of possible outcomes.
