Picture that bent coin I flipped a page ago and imagine you had the opportunity to flip it and learn more about its tendency to come up heads. From a handful of flips you couldn’t know the true long run relative frequencyy of that coin. That means you don’t know the probabilityy of heads in the long run relative frequencyy sense. However, you could start to form a view about what are more likely values for the probabilityy (LRRF interpretation) and you could express this in terms of probabilities (degree of belief about LRRF interpretation) that each LRRF is the true one.

It concentrated on situations where there was just a finite number of outcomes, such as the roll of a die, or a hand in a card game. It made perfect sense to talk about the probability of an outcome and to calculate the probabilityy of an eventt by adding up the probabilities of the outcomes they included. ) The sum of the probabilities of all the outcomes from a situation is one, because it is certain that one of those outcomes will result, by definition.
