Pick a number from 1 to 10. What is the probability
that you picked an odd number? There
are five odd numbers between 1 and ten. The probability is 5:10. Or you can express it
as a fraction: 5/10. Since it's a fraction, why not reduce it?
The probability that you will pick an odd number is 1/2. Probability can also be expressed
as a percent...1/2=50% Or as
a decimal...1/2=50%=.5 |
