# Ch 16: CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Probability

### About This Chapter

## CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Probability - Chapter Summary

Use this chapter's lessons to refresh your understanding of various types of probabilities and how to calculate them. Brush up these math concepts as you prepare for CUNY Assessment Test in Math questions on:

- Events and sample spaces
- Probabilities of simple, compound and complementary events
- How to calculate probabilities of independent and dependent events
- Methods of calculating simple conditional probabilities

You can watch these videos on a computer or mobile device. They are short, about five to ten minutes each, and our instructors use animations and plenty of examples to get their points across. Lesson quizzes and a chapter exam let you test your knowledge, and you can use the clickable links in the timeline to jump to specific topics in the lesson that require additional review.

### CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Probability Chapter Objectives

Newly admitted CUNY student take the Assessment Test in Math to determine their placement in math courses. There are four sections on the test, and questions on probability are in the numerical skills/pre-algebra section.

All questions on the test are multiple choice, asking you to solve a problem and select the right answer from several choices. The lesson quizzes in this chapter are in the same format, so completing them can show you what you'll face on test day. These quizzes also offer an assessment of your learning, letting you see where you might need extra study.

### 1. Events as Subsets of a Sample Space: Definition & Example

Probability can get very confusing at times. You will find that some words, such as events and subsets, are often referring to the same concept depending on the experiment. Use this lesson to understand the concept of events as subsets.

### 2. Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

Simple, compound, and complementary events are different types of probabilities. Each of these probabilities are calculated in a slightly different fashion. In this lesson, we will look at some real world examples of these different forms of probability.

### 3. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

Sometimes probabilities need to be calculated when more than one event occurs. These types of compound events are called independent and dependent events. Through this lesson, we will look at some real-world examples of how to calculate these probabilities.

### 4. How to Calculate Simple Conditional Probabilities

Conditional probability, just like it sounds, is a probability that happens on the condition of a previous event occurring. To calculate conditional probabilities, we must first consider the effects of the previous event on the current event.
