 B. Fair price
 C. Experiment
 D. Relative frequency
 2 the possible results of an experiment
 A. Net Amount

 C. Mutually exclusive
 D. Outcomes
 3 a subcollection of the outcomes of an experiment
 A. Event
 B. Law of large numbers
 C. Expected Value
 D. Sample space
 4 the relative frequency of occurrence of an event. It's determind by actual observation of an experiment. P(E) = number of times event E has occured/ number of times experiment was performed
 A. Empirical probability (Relative frequency)
 B. Equally likely outcomes
 C. Compound probability
 D. Fair price
 5 A kind of probabiltiy that is determined through a study of the possible outcomes that can occur for the given experiment.
 A. Compound probability
 B. Conditional probability
 C. Theoretical probability
 D. Empirical probability
 6 It states that probability statements apply in practice to a large number of trial, not to a single trial. It is the relative frequency over the long run that is accurately predictable, not individual events or precise totals.
 A. Empirical probability
 B. Law of large numbers
 C. Equally likely outcomes
 D. Compound probability
 7 If each outcomes of an experiment has the same chance of occurring as any other outcome
 A. Mutually exclusive
 B. Equally likely outcomes
 C. Empirical probability
 D. Expectation
 8 a ratio of the probability that the event will fail to occur (failure) to the probability that the event will occur ( success).
 A. Net Amount
 B. Expected Value
 C. Odds in favor
 D. Odds against
 9 a ratio of the probability that the event will occcur to the probability that the event will fair to occur.
 A. Net Amount
 B. Expected Value
 C. Odds in favor
 D. Odds against
 10 is often used to determine the expected results of an experiment or business venture over the long term. It's also used to predict the expected gain or loss in games of chance such as the lottery, roulette, craps, and slot machines.
 A. Experiment
 B. Expected Value (Expectation)
 C. Fair price
 D. Independent events
 11 It is a term commonly used in business accounting, although it is sometimes borrowed by personal finance professionals. It is often used interchangeably with net income. The personal finance definition of it refers to the income left over after taxes have been deducted, often called take-home pay. The accounting definition is a bit more complex and refers to a company’s profit after the cost of doing business and all other expenses, both tangible and intangible, have been deducted.
 A. Net amount
 B. Sample space
 C. Tree diagrams
 D. Compound probability
 12 the amount to be paid that will result in an expected value of \$0.
 A. Fair price
 B. Tree diagrams
 C. Sample space
 D. Sample point
 13 a list of all the possible outcomes of an experiment
 A. Sample point
 B. Tree diagrams
 C. Sample space
 D. Expectation
 14 each individual outcome in the sample space
 A. Odds against
 B. Sample point
 C. Odds in favor
 D. Mutually exclusive
 15 to determine sample spaces. It illustrating all the possible outcomes when a coin is tossed and a die is rolled has two initial branches, one for each possible outcome of the coin.
 A. Expectation
 B. Expected Value
 C. Net Amount
 D. Three diagrams

 A. Mutually exclusive
 B. Sample space
 C. Tree diagrams
 D. Compound probability
 17 It requires obtaining a “successful” outcome for at least one of the given events.
 A. Or probability problem
 B. And probability problem
 C. Conditional probability
 D. Independent events

 A. Or probability problem
 B. And probability problem
 C. Conditional probability
 D. Independent events
