What Does Percent Chance Mean?: Activity 1 of 3

Prev ActivityNext Activity


Probability is the chance that a specific event will happen. Measuring probability helps us understand everything from health risks to weather reports to baseball.

Here’s an example:

The referee at a basketball game tosses a coin to decide which team starts. Your team picks “heads.” You've got a 1 out of 2 chance of winning the toss, since the coin can land 1 of 2 ways (either heads or tails).

In one game, Ted rolls a 3 with one die. If he rolls the die again, what is the probability that he will roll a 3 now?
