Suppose I vigorously ﬂip a fair coin in the traditional way. What is the probabilityy of getting heads? 5, or perhaps 50:50, or evens, depending on their preferred language. This is a probabilityy we feel we know. An idea that captures a lot of our intuitions about probabilityy is that it has something to do with what would happen if we could study the outcomes of many examples of a situation. If we could toss that fair coin billions of times and record the proportion of heads we would expect it to be very close to 50% (see Figure 1).
You can’t say ‘given all the facts’ because tomorrow’s weather would be one of them, and saying ‘given all the facts I know now’ is likely to lead to confusion as your knowledge continues to increase over time. Ideally you should make a clear, sensible choice, and communicate it. 9 SITUATION (ALSO KNOWN AS AN EXPERIMENT) Other common interpretations of probabilityy focus on the narrower topic of outcomes. This is the explanation most likely to be shown in a textbook on probability. g. tossing a coin, drawing a card from a shuﬄed deck, driving a car for a year and recording the cost of damage to it, paying the total claims on an insurance policy).
Surely an outcome of some kind is inevitable, by deﬁnition, so the sum of the probabilities for all the individual outcomes must be one. How can the sum of lots of zeros be anything other than zero? Good question, and perhaps it makes more sense to think of those zeroes actually being inﬁnitesimally small ‘nearly zeroes’ so that what is really happening is that inﬁnitely many inﬁnitesimally small things are being added together. Only by cunning mathematical reasoning can the value of such a sum be worked out.
