In this example, the probability of having a back injury case reported is 23/87, or 26%. Next, the safety manager must determine the probability of a case that is a back injury and a lost workday case. The probability is 14/87, or 16%. 26 Therefore, given the fact that the case reported was a back injury, there is a 61% chance that the case is a lost workday case. Permutations, Ordered Combinations, and Combinations In the examples presented thus far, the total number of possible events has been provided or easily determined by counting the total number of cases in the sample or population.

For each range of potential outcomes, the frequency of cases is identified and listed.
