How to use "Hypo-thetical" in context?

When people hear the word "hypothetical," it normally brings up thoughts of school assignments and games. But what do these hypothetical things actually mean? A hypothetical situation is one in which there is no factual evidence to support it. It's a way of thinking about something that's not real, in order to make an informed decision. For example, if you're deciding whether or not to go to class, you might consider going if the potential benefit of learning outweighs the potential risk of getting a zero on your final exam.
