Theoretical and Experimental Probability
1. A number cube is rolled 24 times and lands on 2 four times and on 6 three times.
a. Find the experimental probability of landing on a 2.
b. Find the experimental probability of not landing on a 6.
c. Compare the experimental probability you found in part a to its theoretical probability.
d. Compare the experimental probability you found in part b to its theoretical probability

Experimental probablility is what you 'discovered'....not what you 'expected'

 

a. You discovered 4 out of 24 =   4/24 = 1/6

b  You discovered three 6's out of 24 rolls.... that means 21/24= 7/8 are NOT 6

c   THEORETICAL prob would be  1/6    (4 out of 24)     compare

d   Theoretical would be 5/6    (20 out of 24)    compare
