Probability Exactly One Event Occurs Probability Exactly One Event Occurs Probability is mainly define with the help of three basic things or properties that are as follows: (a) : There is a set that contains all the possible events that is also known as sample space Ω. (b) : There is define one set of possible events that is define as the subset E of sample space. (C) : There is also define the probability function P that is applied on the set of all possible events E. If we define the probability rules that are expressed using the above symbols as: (1) : Probability of occurrence any event v is define as P (v) > = 0 Here v is define as any event that will occur.

(3) : There is two events that are p and q then P (p U q) = P (p) + P (q) that define p and q are disjoint events. In probability we can define different types of occurrences of events that are define as the exactly or at most or at least events. So we define the probability exactly one event occurs as follows: If there are two events X and Y in the sample space and we want to know the probability that exactly one of the event X and Y will occur then it will express as: P (X) + P (Y) – 2 P (X ^ Y). There is also one other situation is that if X is subset of set Y and the probability of occurrence of the set Y is P (Y) > 0 then P (X / Y) = P (X) / P (Y). We can define it by taking an example that is defined as: Example : If there are given some probabilities that a person randomly buys TV with probability of 0.6 and computer with probability of 0.3 and probability of buying nothing is 0.2 then find the probability that the person buy exactly one of the item? Solution : As we know there are three types of probabilities are given as Probability of buying TV = 0.6 Probability of buying computer = 0.3 Read More About Critical Points Multivariable Tutorcircle.com Page No. : 2/4 Probability of buying nothing = 0.2 We can define probability of exactly one item purchase as according to the rule of exactly one event occur that is P (X) + P (Y) – 2 P (X ^ Y). So probability of exactly one item purchase = P (TV) + P (Computer) – 2 P ( TV ^ computer) = 0.6 + 0.3 – 0.2 = 0.9 – 0.2 = 0.7 So the probability that the person buys exactly one of item is 0.7. We can also take another example to understand the probability of exactly one event occur as If in a competition there is two questions in which 90 percent of students are given the answer of first question and 50 percent of students give the both answer right and 5 percent give the wrong answer of both the questions so find the probability the exactly one of the answer of questions is right? Solution : As in the question given students given the answer of first question = 90 percent = .90 students given the both answer right = 50 percent = .50 students given both wrong answer = 5 percent = .05 So the probability the exactly one of the answer of questions is right = .40 + .05 = .45 Tutorcircle.com Page No. : 3/4 Page No. : 2/3 Thank You For Watching Presentation
