If we are talking of an aleatory event, and its relative frequency obtained over a large number of trials, yes.

Relationship between relative frequency and probability of an event?

The relative frequency is an estimate of the probability of an event.

Is relative frequency similar to the concept of probability?

The relative frequency of of an event is one possible measure of its probability.

Why is relative frequency different to probability?

It is not! It is one measure of probability.

What is the calculated probability based on relative frequency?

It is the empirical or experimental probability.

Does relative frequency probability use group information and apply it to single cases?

Yes, relative frequency probability uses group information and applies it to single cases.

Relative frequency formula?

Probability of event = relative frequency = f/nf is the frequency of the event occurence in a sample of n observances.

What is the meaning of a relative frequency of 0?

Relative frequency of an event is the frequency of that event divided by the total number of observations. Therefore, a relative frequency of 0 implies the event has zero proportion (or probability).

What is an example of relative frequency probability?

Flip a coin 1000 times, counting the number of 'heads' that occur. The relative frequency probability of 'heads' for that coin (aka the empirical probability) would be the count of heads divided by 1000. Please see the link.

What is law of large numbers?

when a probability experiment is repeated a large number of times, the relative frequency probability of an outcome will approach its theoretical probability.

How do you calculate relative frequency probability?

You carry out an experiment repeatedly. Then the number of times that the selected even occurs divided by the total number of trials is the relative probability for that event.

What are the Three Approaches to finding a Probability?

1. subjective probability (intelligent guess) 2. relative frequency (in percent) 3. classical probability (in decimal)

What is the difference between the terms 'probability' and 'relative frequency'?

If an action is repeated n times and a certain event occurred b times then the ratio b/n is called the relative frequency.Where as theoretical probability is used to determine the number of ways that the event can occur if an experiment is repeated a large number of times.

What is the difference between relative frequency approximation of probability and the classical approach to probability?

Relative frequency approximation is conducting experiments and counting the number of times the event occurs divided by the total number of events. The classical approach is determine the number of ways the event can occur divided by the total number of events.

What is the Difference in relative frequency and percentage frequency?

Relative frequency is a method of calculating the frequency of an event. Percentage frequency is a way of presenting the frequency of an event.

Frequency approach for probability?

Well, that's not much of a question. Perhaps you are asking: What is the frequency interpretation of probability? This is called the classical interpretation of probability. Given n independent and identical trials with m occurrences of of a particular outcome, then the probability of this outcome, is equal to the limit of m/n as n goes to infinity. If you are asking: How can probabilities be estimated given data, based on frequency approach? A table is constructed, with intervals, and the number of events in each interval is calculated. The number of events divided by the total number of data is the relative frequency and an estimate of probability for the particular interval.

If a die is rolled 375 times and 5 occurs 80 times what is the probability of rolling a 5?

The probability of rolling a 5, based on the information given, is 80/375 or 16/75. Your problem describes a relative frequency approximation of probability.

The first class in a relative frequency table is 50-59 and the corresponding relative frequency is 0.2What does the 0.2 value indicate?

The sum of the relative frequencies must equal 1 (or 100%), because each individual relative frequency is a fraction of the total frequency. The relative frequency of any category is the proportion or percentage of the data values that fall in that category. Relative frequency = relative in category/ total frequency It means a number in that class appeared 20% of the total appearances of all classes

What is the name for a relative frequency distribution shown by heights?

Are you talking about a histogram of the relative frequency distribution.

What is the ratio of a frequency to its total frequency?

The ration of a frequency to its total frequency is called relative frequency.
