Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've always understood probability and statistics to be closely related but quite distinct. Statistics looks backwards by drawing conclusions from data collected. Probability looks foward by telling you  or predicting  that there is a 50% chance of tossing heads, for example. hth

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm so you can use statistics to infer from data previously collected, and then while you can predict that there is a 50% you choose for example a yellow sock from your drawer in the morning
