Question and answer
Identify at least one example of probability encountered in everyday life
I think we use probability routinely in our daily lives. When you get into a car and drive on public roads, we often assume that we have a low probability of being hit by another car. [ When you pull out onto a busy street crossing 2 lanes of traffic, you judge the speed of the traffic in those lanes. You assume you have a high probability of judging that speed correctly when you cross those
lanes. If you did not make that assumption, you probably would not attempt to cross the lanes for fear of being hit by another car. We assume that we have a low probability of being hit by lightning or a meteor. When you eat with your hands, you assume your probability of getting sick from germs on your hands is low. Or you wouldn't eat with your hands. You could say the same of eating in a restaurant with reference to food you didn't prepare yourself. Within assuming many probabilities, I think we'd constantly live in fear of what horrible things might happen to us. From: Muhammad Waqar salman. Read more: ]
