Which simulation best models the scenario?

If 15% of the apples picked one afternoon are rotten, then I would expect that the number of apples picked multiplied by 0.15 yields the approximate number of rotten apples. 

 

If I place 30 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that \(30*0.15\text{ or }4.5\) pieces of paper read "rotten."--not 3.

 

If I place 20 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that \(20*0.15\text{ or }3\) pieces of paper read "rotten." This is a match, and it is the correct answer.

 

If I place 15 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that \(15*0.15\text{ or }2.25\) pieces of paper read "rotten."--not 3.

 

If I place 12 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that \(12*0.15\text{ or }1.8\) pieces of paper read "rotten."--not 3.
