Probability is a branch of mathematics that deals with uncertainty, specifically with numerical estimates of how likely an event is to occur and what might happen if that event does or does not occur. Probability has many applications in statistics, engineering, finance, machine learning, and computer science. Get acquainted with the basic constructs of probability through this course. Start by examining different types of events, outcomes, and the complement of an event. You will then simulate various probabilistic experiments in Python and note how the outcomes of these experiments tend to converge towards theoretically expected outcomes as the number of trials increases. By the time you finish this course, you will be able to define and measure probabilities of common events and simulate probabilistic experiments using Python.
