  • Help with Calculating Probabilities -

    You can review your teacher's class notes, and the textbook, which should be self-explanatory.

    You are probably stuck with notations, which are usually described at the beginning of the notes or textbook.

    Probabilites are numbers between 0 and 1, and represent the likelihood of a certain event happening.

    If Q represents the event of drawing a queen from a 52-card deck, then
    P(Q)=4/52 since there are four queens in a 52 card deck, and we assume that the probability drawing any of the cards from a 52-card deck is equal.

    Other than that, you can post a specific question that represents a typical problem with which you need help.
