You have begun to do a unit on probability. I would like you to watch the following video. At the end you see this number 0.0000001% What does it mean? Leave a comment behind.

WOW! that commercial was amazing hehe. I think they got 0.0000001% as a experimental probability because I think that 0.0000001% is the ratio of the number of times that event occured to the total amount of trials they did. It can't be theoretical probability because we saw that they tried it so it means they did an experiment. So 0.0000001% is the experimental probability of that event occuring on how many times they tried it.

I think it means the probability of that ever happening at all, under any condition. It's just not likely at all.
