## How to use this tool

- Enter the “Probability (percentage or fraction)”, “Trial”, and “Hiting”, and the calculation results will be displayed automatically.
- Probability calculation results are rounded to the third decimal place.

## Calculation of the probability of hitting probability p more than once in n tries

Probability of hitting more than once = 100% - Probability of not hitting once

#### e.g. Probability 1%, 1 try, probability of hitting at least 1.

$1-0.99=0.01=1\%$

-> About 1 in 100 hit.

#### e.g. Probability 1%, 100 try, probability of hitting at least 1.

$1-0.99^{100}=1-0.36603...=0.63397...\approx63.4\%$

-> About 2 in 3 hit.

## Calculation of the probability of hitting a probability p more than m times in n tries

If the number of times you want to hit is more than two, the calculation becomes more difficult.

- Probability of hitting more than once = 100% - Probability of not hitting all - Probability of hitting only once
- Probability of hitting 3 or more times = 100% - Probability of not hitting all - Probability of hitting only once - Probability of hitting only twice

The “probability of hitting only x times” can be calculated using the following formula.

nCx is the number of combinations to choose x out of n different ones.

#### e.g. Probability 1%, 1 try, probability of hitting 2 or more times

Probability of not hitting once:

$P_0={}_{100}C_0 \times 0.01^0 \times (1-0.01)^{(100-0)}$

$=1 \times 1 \times 0.99^{100}$

$\approx 0.36603$

Probability of hitting only once:

$P_1={}_{100}C_1 \times 0.01^1 \times (1-0.01)^{(100-1)}$

$=100 \times 0.01 \times 0.99^{99}$

$\approx 0.36973$

Probability of hitting two or more times:

$P=1-P_0-P_1$

$=1-0.36603-0.36973$

$=0.26424$

$\approx 26.42\%$
