Let us look into the next concept of "Basic Math Terms for SHSAT".
An event is a collection or set of outcome.
The sample space is a set of all possible outcomes for an event. A sample space can be small, such as the 2 outcomes when a coin is flipped. Or a sample space can be large, such as the possible number of Texas Classic automobile license plates.
Probability = Number of desirable outcomes/Total number of possible outcomes
