## How can rates be used to make a prediction?

When there are two quantities, unit rate describes how many units of the first type of quantity corresponds to one unit of the second type of quantity. In many real world problems, we can use **unit rates** to make predictions. Example 1 : … If she maintains the same driving rate, can she drive more than 600 miles?

## How do you predict possible outcomes?

Theoretical probability uses math to predict the outcomes. Just divide the favorable outcomes by the possible outcomes. Experimental probability is based on observing a trial or experiment, counting the favorable outcomes, and dividing it by the total number of times the trial was performed.

## What is the difference between probability and prediction?

The difference between probability and prediction is that **probability is based on the set of data** and varies between highly unlikely to extremely likely. Whereas the prediction is absolute and will either be right or wrong.

## How do you make predictions using theoretical probability?

You can use theoretical probabilities to make predictions **by multiplying the theoretical probability times the number of events**.
