Probability:

The study of probability helps us figure out the likelihood of something happening. For instance, when you roll a dice, you might ask how likely you are to roll a 4.Since there are 6 numbers on a dice and only 1 number 4 the probability would be 1 out of 6.

The probability of the occurrence of an event can be expressed as a fraction or a decimal from 0 to 1.

So 1 out of 6 can be written as:

1/6 - fraction
0.16666-> - decimal

a coin is tossed once. the probabily of getting heads is tails is
