# Theoretical and Experimental Probability

Theoretical and experimental probability are fundamental concepts in the field of probability theory, offering insights into the likelihood of various outcomes in a given scenario. While theoretical probability relies on mathematical principles to predict outcomes based on assumptions and calculations, experimental probability is derived from empirical observations and data gathered through experimentation or real-world events. Understanding the distinction between these two approaches is crucial for making informed decisions in areas such as statistics, gambling, risk assessment, and decision-making under uncertainty.
