An experiment with three outcomes has been repeated 50 times, and it was learned that *E*_{1} occurred 20 times, *E*_{2} occurred 13 times, and *E*_{3} occurred 17 times. Assign probabilities to the outcomes. What method did you use?

To determine

Assign probabilities to the outcomes. Explain which method is used in the experiment.

**Calculation:**

The given experiment can be repeated in 50 times,

The probability of the event can be obtained as given below:

Substitute 20 for ‘number of ways of an event occurs’ and 50 for ‘total frequency’ in the above equation.

Therefore,

Thus,
