  3. 3. EX Pick a card randomly from a standard deck. (52) P(Queen of clubs) =   P(Ace) =  P(diamond) =  P(red card) = 
  4. 4. The probability of all events happening  is 1 or 100%. Therefore....the probability of an event NOT HAPPENING IS: 1 ­ P(event happening) 
  5. 5. EX If the chance of you winning a game is 0.41, then  what is the chance of losing the game?
