Simple probability is a measure of the likelihood of a certain event occurring. It is typically expressed as a fraction or decimal between 0 and 1, where 0 represents impossibility and 1 represents certainty.
To calculate simple probability, you divide the number of favorable outcomes by the total number of possible outcomes. For example, if you roll a standard six-sided die, the probability of rolling a 3 would be 1/6, since there is only one way to roll a 3 out of six possible outcomes.
Simple probability deals with a single event, while compound probability deals with multiple events or conditions. Simple probability is also based on equally likely outcomes, while compound probability takes into account the different probabilities of each event occurring.
Simple probability is useful in many real-life situations, such as predicting the outcome of a sports game, determining the chances of winning a lottery, or assessing the risk of certain events occurring.
No, simple probability cannot be greater than 1. This would imply that an event is certain to occur, which is not possible. Probability values greater than 1 are meaningless and do not represent a valid measure of likelihood.
