 Math Forum: Ask Dr. Math FAQ: Probability
Because each probability is a fraction of the sample space, the sum of the probabilities of all the possible outcomes equals one.
The probability of the occurrence of an event is always one minus the probability that it doesn't occur.
For example, if the probability of picking a red marble from a jar that contains 4 red marbles and 6 blue marbles is 4/10 or 2/5, then the probability of not picking a red marble is equal to 1 - 4/10 = 6/10 or 3/5, which is also the probability of picking a blue marble.

  Statistics Glossary - probability
Probability is conventionally expressed on a scale from 0 to 1; a rare event has a probability close to 0, a very common event has a probability close to 1.
Like all probabilities, a subjective probability is conventionally expressed on a scale from 0 to 1; a rare event has a subjective probability close to 0, a very common event has a subjective probability close to 1.
The addition rule is a result used to determine the probability that event A or event B occurs or both occur.

 Statistics Glossary - Probability
In probability theory we say that two events, A and B, are independent if the probability that they both occur is equal to the product of the probabilities of the two individual events.
The probability density function of a continuous random variable is a function which can be integrated to obtain the probability that the random variable takes a value in a given interval.
The Geometric distribution is related to the Binomial distribution in that both are based on independent trials in which the probability of success is constant and equal to p.

The probability of an outcome for a particular event is a number telling us how likely a particular outcome is to occur.
Probability is usually expressed as a fraction or decimal.

 Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics
The goal of this project is to provide free, high quality, interactive, web-based resources for students and teachers of probability and statistics.
Basically, our project consists of an integrated set of components that includes expository text, applets, data sets, biographical sketches, and an object library.
In many subjects, to think at all is to think like a mathematician.
