Benchmarks 9D (The Mathematical World: Uncertainty)
Grades 6-8, page 229
How probability is estimated depends on what is known about the situation.
Estimates can be based on data from similar conditions in the past or on
the assumption that all the possibilities are known.

A physical or mathematical model can be used to estimate the probability
of real-world events.

just by chance.
