Quiz: The Ultimate Probability Practice Test!

Do you know how to calculate the probability? First, choose an event with equal outcomes, such as flipping a coin to see if it lands on heads or tails. Specify all possible outcomes which can occur. Then, divide the number of events by the number of results. Divvy up all possible outcomes and the likelihood to make sure they equal 1. Represent the problem of an impossible outcome with a 0. Taking the quiz will tell what you know.
