Q:
# onsider the following. (a) Explain why β0.41 cannot be the probability of some event. A probability must be between zero and one. A probability must be greater than one. A probability must be an integer. (b) Explain why 1.21 cannot be the probability of some event. A probability must be between zero and one. A probability must be an integer. A probability must be negative. (c) Explain why 120% cannot be the probability of some event. A probability must be between zero and one. A probability must be an integer. A probability must be negative. (d) Can the number 0.56 be the probability of an event? Explain. No, this is too large to be a probability. No, a probability cannot be positive. Yes, it is a number between 0 and 1. Yes, it is a number between 0.5 and 1.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:a) A probability must be between zero and one.b) A probability must be between zero and one.c) A probability must be between zero and one.d) Yes, it is a number between 0 and 1.Step-by-step explanation:Properties of probability:Probability is the likelihood of happening of an event. It can never be negativeProbability of an event lies between 0 and 1An event with 0 probability is impossible eventEvent with probability 1 is sure event.a) -0.41 cannot be the probability of some event.A probability must be between zero and one.b) Β 1.21 cannot be the probability of some event.A probability must be between zero and one. c) 120% cannot be the probability of some event. 120 % means a probability of 1.2A probability must be between zero and one.d) 0.56 can be the probability of an event.Yes, it is a number between 0 and 1.
