Single-Step Experiments

A single-step experiment means a trial using 1 step.

For example, rolling a dice once or flipping a coin once is a single-step experiment.

Equally Likely Outcomes

Equally-likely outcomes are situations that have a 50/50 chance (50%) of happening.

For example, rolling a dice and seeing whether it lands as an odd or even number is an equally-likely outcome. Flipping a coin and seeing whether it lands heads or tails is also an equally-likely outcome.
