Think of an experiment for which an event occurs with each probability.
Explain your choice.


a) 100%

 

b) 1/2


c) 1:6

d) 0

Think of an experiment for which an event occurs with each probability.
Explain your choice.
a) 100%
b) 1/2
c) 1:6

d) 0

 

a)  Throw a six-sided die with a 1 on each face.   Probability of throwing a 1.

 

b)   Throw a six-sided die with a 1 on three faces and a 2 on three faces.  Probability of throwing a 1.

 

c) Throw a standard six-sided die.  Probability of throwing a 1.

 

d) Throw a six sided die with a 2 on each face.  Probability of throwing a 1.

 

I'll let you come up with the explanations!

I don't understand make it clear


because for all you did 

"Probability of throwing a 1."

and I don't see part c

The probability of throwing a 1 with a standard six-sided die is 1/6 (which I assume is what part  c) is asking for).

 

For part a) the probability of throwing a 1 with a six-sided die with 1 on every face is 100%.

 

etc.

I interpreted the question as requiring a different experiment for each event.  However, if you need a single experiment, then how about something like:

 

Experiment:   

 

Throw a standard die.

 

Events:

 

a)  The probability of getting a number between 1 and 6 inclusive = 100%

 

b) The probability of getting an even number = 1/2

 

c) The probability of getting a 1 = 1/6

 

d) The probability of getting a 7 = 0

 

If there is some other interpretation of your question you will need to clarify!
