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
