###### Asked in Probability

### The ratio of the probability that an event will occur compared with the probability of its not occurring?

odds
"The
odds against an event is a ratio of the probability that the event
will fail to occur (failure) to the probability that the event will
occur (success). To find odds you must first know or determine the
probability of success and the probability of failure.
Odds against event = P(event fails to occur)/P(event occurs) =
P(failure)/P(success)
The odds in favor of an event are expressed as a ratio of
the probability that the event will occur to the probability that
the event will...

### What do you mean by probability?

Probability is a measure of the expectation that an event will
occur or a statement is true. Probabilities are given a value

will occur.

###### Asked in History, Politics & Society, Probability

### Are the historical events which have occurred extremely unlikely and what history has a higher probability of occurring?

Historical events which have occurred have a probability of 1.
They are a certainty. This refers to the event itself, not some
historian's or politician's interpretation of what happened.
However, the probability that they will occur again depends on the
event. Exact recurrence is impossible (probability
= 0).
