# Given the probability p=1/3 that an event will happen, how do you find the probability that the event will not happen?

The probability that the event will not happen is

We know that it is certain that either an event will happen or it will not happen.

To find the probability that an event will not happen, subtract the probability of the event happening from 1. In this case, if the probability ( p = \frac{1}{3} ) that the event will happen, then the probability that the event will not happen is ( 1 - p = 1 - \frac{1}{3} = \frac{2}{3} ). Therefore, the probability that the event will not happen is ( \frac{2}{3} ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
