2

Something that can happen as a result of a trial

What’s an outcome?

New cards

3

The number of times you expect an event to happen

What’s the expected frequency?

New cards

New cards

6

Number of trials

What increases the reliability of estimated probability?

New cards

7

Relative frequency

What’s another way to say estimated probability?

New cards

8

The probability of an event occurring for negative events

What’s the risk?

New cards

9

No. of trials where event happens/total no. of trials

How to calculate risk of event

New cards

10

How likely an event is to happen

What’s the absolute risk?

New cards

11

How much more likely an event is to happen for one group compared to another group

What is relative risk?

New cards

12

Risk for those in the group/risk for those not in the group

How to calculate relative risk

New cards

13

Events that cannot happen at the same time

What are mutually exclusive events?

New cards

14

The set contains all the possible outcomes

What does exhaustive mean?

New cards

15

1

In mutually exclusive and exhaustive events, what’s the sum of the probabilities?

New cards

16

P(A or B)=P(A)+P(B)

P(A)+P(not A)=1

P(not A)=1-P(A)

What is the addition law for ME events?

New cards

17

Mutually exclusive events

What doesn’t the general addition law not apply for?

New cards

18

P(A or B)=P(A)+P(B)-P(A and B)

What’s the general addition law?

New cards

19

How is P(A or B) represented on a Venn diagram?

New cards

21

Unconnected events

What are independent events?

New cards

22

P(A and B)=P(A)*P(B)

What’s the rule for 2 independent events?

New cards

23

P(A and B and C)=P(A)**P(B)**P(C)

What’s the rule for 3 independent events?

New cards

24

When one event affects the other

What’s conditional probability?

New cards

25

The probability of B given that A happened

What does P(B|A) mean?

New cards

26

If phrases like ‘given that’ or ‘if’ are used

How can you tell if something’s conditional probability?

New cards

27
