The probabilities of rolling several numbers using two dice.

Probability

Branch of mathematics concerning numerical descriptions of how likely an event is to occur, or how likely it is that a proposition is true.

These concepts have been given an axiomatic mathematical formalization in probability theory, which is used widely in areas of study such as statistics, mathematics, science, finance, gambling, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer science, game theory, and philosophy to, for example, draw inferences about the expected frequency of events.

The cache language model and other statistical language models that are used in natural language processing are also examples of applications of probability theory.
