Could I get a simple explanation for the equation below?
I guess the only parts I don't quite understand are the LIM part and the n0 (why is there a 0...to distinguish it from "n"?).
I apologize if this sounds retarded, but it's been years since I even looked at an algebraic or calculus equation and I now have a need for it...
repeat the experiment a large number of times, and record occurences
of out come we estimate the probability of as:
Then the definition of the probability of is the limit of such an estimator as .
This can be written as:
but this is a abuse of notation from other parts of mathematics as this limit
is not the usual limit encountered in other parts of mathematics, and cannot
(Just learn it, you will need it for your exam, but it is nonsense. There are
better defintions that you will encounter if you contine with the study of
