## 123F 3 years ago What formula is used to find the experimental probability of an event?

1. satellite73

$\frac{\text{number of successes}}{\text{number of trials}}$

?

i toss a die 10 times and get 3 "sixes" then the experimental probability of getting a "six" is 3/10

4. satellite73

same as relative frequency.

. What formula is used to find the theoretical probability of an event? P(event) = n(event)/n(total)=n(E)/n(S) am i right?

this is right if you are assuming that all events are equally likely, yes
