### What event has a probability of 1?

An event which has a probablility of 1 is one that will
definitely happen. Probabilities range between 0 and 1 (0% and
100%) with a probability of zero meaning it is impossible and a
probability of one meaning that it is definite. i.e. winning the
lottery if you never play has a probability of zero and winning the
lottery if you know the correct numbers in advance has a
probability of one.

### What is the emperical probability of someone winning the pick three lottery?

Empirical probability is based on data gained through
experimentation. If there is cause to believe that, for example,
there is some bias in the balls of the lottery machine, looking at
the outcome for a long period of time may show this.
Theoretically, the probability of someone winning a pick-three
lottery, where the numbers range from 000 to 999, is 1/1000 because
you pick one 3-digit combination from the 1,000 available.
