Numbers are a game. Numbers are everywhere. They can be anything you want them to be, and they can mean something different to everyone who encounters them. In this blog post, we’re going to do some math with numbers- the kind of math that will help you understand probability better.

The number 0 would not be a probability because there is no possible chance of anything happening. A zero percent in the lottery means that you have to do nothing but wait for your winnings, and if it were a percentage then at least one person out of 100 people gets their prize! But try waiting ten years. We’ll get back to this later. 

A negative number might seem like an unlikely probability choice, since probabilities are usually written as positive numbers, but they could also refer to something with less than a 50% chance such as rolling two dice and getting both ones or any other combination where all outcomes are equally likely. There’s only 25% chance that you will roll two ones on a single die.
