The world is an uncertain place. Making predictions about something as seemingly mundane as tomorrow’s weather, for example, is actually quite a difficult task. Even with the most advanced computers and models of the modern era, weather forecasters still cannot say with absolute certainty whether it will rain tomorrow. The best they can do is to report their best estimate of the chance that it will rain tomorrow.
For example, if the forecasters are fairly confident that it will rain tomorrow, they might say that there is a 90% chance of rain. You have probably heard statements like this your entire life, but have you ever asked yourself what exactly it means to say that there is a 90% chance of rain?
