DNA Pot Mathematics Data Analysis Counting Methods

 

We need to know counting methods to understand probability even at its elementary section. There is a systematic way to count objects. Before we get into probability, it is essential to know how to count. Ideas and methods of probability address uncertainty. Uncertainty is important in the process of making decisions and predicting outcomes. Therefore, we must learn the counting methods.


When a set of objects is small, we can count them easily because it is easy to list them and count them one by one. When a set of objects is so large, it is required to come up with good methods of counting. How do we count the objects without listing them? We will use some techniques. these techniques can be used in counting a large set or when a set contains objects related in some sort of pattern or some sort of system.
