# What is equally likely?

**Equally likely**events are events that have the same theoretical probability (or likelihood) of occurring. Example. Each numeral on a die is

**equally likely**to occur when the die is tossed.

In this regard, what is an equally likely outcome?

**Equally Likely Outcomes**. The **outcomes** of a sample space are called **equally likely** if all of them have the same chance of occurring.

Likewise, what is the probability? **Probability** = the number of ways of achieving success. the total number of possible outcomes. For example, the **probability** of flipping a coin and it being heads is ½, because there is 1 way of getting a head and the total number of possible outcomes is 2 (a head or tail). We write P(heads) = ½ .

Then, what are equally likely events give an example?

**Equally likely events** are those **events** which have an **equal** probability of occuring. For **example**: When we toss an unbiased coin, the probability of getting a heads is 1/2 and the probability of getting a tails is 1/2.

Is the known outcomes that are all equally likely to occur?

Classical / Theoretical Probability If **outcomes** are **equally likely**, then the probability of an event **occurring** is the number in the event divided by the number in the sample space.
