### Informal Definition

The **probability** of an event is the likelihood that the event will occur (within a certain formally or informally understood context).

As such, a **probability** can range from $0$ (will never happen) to $1$ (is certain to happen).

Commonly, a **probability** is often stated in terms of a percentage.

### Formal Definition

Let $\EE$ be an experiment.

Let $A \in \Sigma$ be an event in the event space $\Sigma$ of $\EE$.

Let $\Pr$ be the probability measure of $\EE$.

Then the **probability** of $A$ is the value $\map \Pr A$.
