The likelihood that a particular event will occur is called _______
Probability defines the likelihood of occurrence of an event.
Answer: The likelihood that a particular event will occur is called probability.
Probability can be defined as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes of an event.
There are many real-life scenarios where we may have to predict the outcome of an event. We may be sure or not sure of the results of an event. In such cases, we say that there is a probability of this event to occur or not to occur. When there is a chance or likelihood for an event to occur, it is termed as probability. If an experiment has 'n' number of outcomes, the number of favorable outcomes can be denoted by x. The formula to calculate the probability of an event is given below.
Probability of an event P(E) = Number of favorable outcomes / Total outcomes = x/n
