This is a top. The parts with 0 and 1 have an angle of 95°. The other parts all have an angle of 45°.

 

1a. How big of a chance is there that you spin 0?

1b. How big of a chance is there that you spin 5?

 

Rob simulates the results with random numbers. He eliminates all that results in 6, 7, 8 and 9. Now he has 30 results left with the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. This is the result of the simulation.

 

1c. How big of a chance is there that you spin 1 according to the simulation?

1d. Why is Rob's method not a good way to simulate the results? What would be a good method to simulate the results of spinning a top with random numbers as a result

Your circle does not add up to 360 degrees. Fix that then

chance of spining any number = number of degrees for that number / 360           

 

 

I expect you can work out why Rob's method is no good all by yourself.  laugh
