Suppose the event of interest is D = the portfolio earns a return above the risk-free rate, and we know the probability distribution of portfolio returns. Assume the risk-free rate is 4 percent. To calculate P(D), the probability of D, we would sum the probabilities of the outcomes that satisfy the definition of the event; that is, we would sum the probabilities of portfolio returns greater than 4 percent.
