Probability Foundations

While the primary purpose of this assignment is for you to think about and work with probability concepts, it is important after you complete your writing that you take the time to review and edit it for coherence, completeness, and grammar. Using a grammar and spelling program such as Grammarly is highly recommended, as excessive grammar errors and incoherent writing will lower your grade.

For the assignment, you will need to be able to discuss the following probability concepts and methods using words without formulas or numbers. Use the attached template and upload the document after saving it as a file with your name in the file title.
