**HOW TO SOLVE PROBABILITY?**

** **

Probability is a mathematical calculation that can be applied to a variety of different applications. You might use probability when projecting sales growth, or you might use probability to determine the chances of acquiring new customers from a specific marketing strategy. Probability can also be applied to determining the chances of something occurring.

In this article, we'll explore what probability is, how to calculate the probability of single and multiple random events and look at the difference between the probability and the odds of an event taking place.

**What is probability?**

Probability is the likelihood of an event or more than one event occurring. Probability represents the possibility of acquiring a certain outcome and can be calculated using a simple formula. Probability may also be described as the likelihood of an event occurring divided by the number of expected outcomes of the event.
