No, sorry that is not correct. I am sure that you meant ALL possible outcomes, but that is the same as total outcome.Probability is Possible outcome ÷ Total outcome.

There can be more than two manufacturing plants, so probability can change accordingly.

The way to say it is

"Total number of favorable outcomes" is also unclear as it does not specify if the condition of favor is a specific one or the set of all favorable conditions possible (which is the total outcome).No, sorry that is not correct. I am sure that you meant ALL possible outcomes, but that is the same as total outcome.

The way to say it isthe probability of an event = (the total number of favorable outcomes)/(total number of outcomes)

People familiar with the concept of probability can figure out the real meaning.

People not familiar with Probability can probably not understand any of the definitions.

Probability of someone getting confused is closer to 0 than to 1.

Actually, I think you mean the probability of someone getting confused is closer to 1 than 0."Total number of favorable outcomes" is also unclear as it does not specify if the condition of favor is a specific one or the set of all favorable conditions possible (which is the total outcome).
