Given the probability p=0.84 that an event will not happen, how do you find the probability that the event will happen?
Feb 17, 2017
From the definition of probability P we have
P (event does happen) = 1 - P (event does not happen)
P (event does happen) = 1 - 0.84=0.16
Footnote .The probability of an event not happening is also known as the complement of an event happening.
