Probability is the chances for an outcome to come true for a given situation. Generally probability of a given situation is a fraction in-between zero and one. The probability calculator tool can be used to solve and evaluate different kinds of situations involving finding probability.
Example 1: Find the probability of getting heads, tails when a coin is tossed?
For a given question there are two outcomes when a coin is tossed.
One possibility is getting heads and the other possibility being getting tails.
Totally there are 2 outcomes for the given situation.
The probability of getting heads when a coin is tossed = 1/2
Similarly, the probability of getting tails when a coin is tossed = 1/2
Therefore, P (Heads) = 1/2, P (Tails) = 1/2
Example 2: Find the probability of getting an odd number when a dice is rolled?
For a given question there are 6 outcomes when a dice is rolled i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
The possibility is getting odd number in a given situation is 1, 3, and 5.
Totally there are 3 outcomes for getting an odd number on a dice.
The probability of getting an odd number = 3 / 6
Therefore, P (Odd number) = 3 / 6 = 1 /2
