NCERT CBSE Class 10th Mathematics Chapter 15: Probability

The fifteenth chapter in Mathematics textbook is 'Probability'.
  • Theoretical probability associated with an event E is defined as “If there are ‘n’ elementary events associated with a random experiment and m of these are favourable to the event E then the probability of occurrence of an event is defined by P(E) as the ratio mn “.
    Probability Class 10 Notes Maths Chapter 15 1
  • If P(E) = 1, then it is called a ‘Certain Event’.
  • If P(E) = 0, then it is called an ‘Impossible Event’.
  • The probability of an event E is a number P(E) such that: 0 ≤ P(E) ≤ 1
  • An event having only one outcome is called an elementary event. The sum of the probabilities of all the elementary events of an experiment is 1.
  • For any event E, P(E) + P(E¯) = 1, where E¯ stands for ‘not E’. E and E¯ are called complementary events.
  • Favourable outcomes are those outcomes in the sample space that are favourable to the occurrence of an event.

The topics discussed in this chapter are as follows:

  • What is Probability?
  • Experimental Probability
  • Theoretical Probability
  • Elementary Event
  • Sum of events
  • Impossible and sure event
  • Geometric Probability
