Can the probability be more than 1 or less than 0? Explain why or why not.

Jun 20th, 2015

probability can not be more than 1 ,1 is the the maximum and zero(0) is the  minimum.When you understand probability to be a fraction, for example, an event with a 100% probability to have a 1/1 probability ( or 2/2, 3/3, etc), that number is equal to 1 (ex. 2/2 = 1). This is the highest probability. You cannot have a probability of greater than 100%. You cannot have a 150% chance of anything. 100% is a sure thing. This makes 1 the maximum possible probablity of an event.

On the flip side of that coin, the lowest probability for an event is a 0% chance. This means no chance at all. You cannot have a probability less than that, as your ratios are 0/1, 0/2, 0/3, etc. This makes 0 the lowest possible probability of an event.
