Probability of happening of an event has two basic components; event and sample space. Sample space is the all possible outcomes in a situation and an event is the event whose probability we want to calculate. Concepts of Probability are practically implementable in daily life problem [Arnold Kling]. Probability of an event can be calculated as;Probability of an Event = No of successful outcomes / Total No of all Possible OutcomesReal Life SituationTwo players David and Paul, Play a series of fair games until any one of them has won six games.
