In a probability model, which of the following numbers could be the probability of an outcome? $1.5,\frac{1}{2},\frac{3}{4},\frac{2}{3},0,-\frac{1}{4}$

The numbers are $\frac{1}{2},\frac{3}{4},\frac{2}{3}\mathrm{and}0$.

See the step by step solution

Step 1. Given information.

In a probability model, which of the following numbers could be the probability of an outcome?

$1.5,\frac{1}{2},\frac{3}{4},\frac{2}{3},0,-\frac{1}{4}$

Step 2. Find the numbers.

Probability is about the chances of an event to occur between 0 and 1 which also mean that the probability of an event can be equal to 0 and 1.

From the given choices the $\frac{1}{2},\frac{3}{4},\frac{2}{3}\mathrm{and}0$ could be the value of the probability of an outcome since it satisfy the definition of probability.

Step 3. Conclusion.

The numbers are $\frac{1}{2},\frac{3}{4},\frac{2}{3}\mathrm{and}0$.
