Figure This!

The probability that an event will occur and the probability that an event will not occur are called “complementary” probabilities. The sum of complementary probabilities is 1 or 100%.

A probability of 0 means that the event cannot occur.

The probability of any event is a percentage ranging from 0% to 100%.
