Experimental Vs. Theoretical Probability
 b. Joan picks a random counter out of a bag     10 times, and she got a yellow counter     7 times. What is the experimental    probability of picking a yellow?a.What is the theoretical probability of picking a yellow counter in simplest form? Sean is doing an experiment to see how many tails he can get when flipping a coin.Trial213456OutcomeHeadsTailsTailsHeadsTailsTailsb. What is the experimental probabilty of getting tails? (in simplest form)a. What is the theoretical probability of getting tails? How many times would he expect to get the color redif he did 30 spins?6 times18 times10 times60 timesMichael spins a spinner 10 timesHe gets the color red 6 times. What is the experimental probability of getting blue?Results from choosing a counter 20 timesGreen10Yellow3Blue7 Diana completes an experiment of spinning athree-colored spinner 15 times. She expected to get aprobability of 1/3 for each color, but her numberswere really off. She got 0% probability for red, 60% for green, and 40% for blue. How could she get her experimental probability closer to her theoretical probability?She should complete more trials.She could spin a different spinner.She needs to dice instead.She needs to spin fewer times. the number 7 will appear more than the number 1.the theoretical probability is always less than theexperimental probabilitythe more times the cube is rolled, the closer theexperimental probability gets to the theoreticalprobabilitythe theoretical probability is always greater thanthe experimental probability.Which of the following statements is TRUE?When rolling a number cube... Theoretical ProbabilityMr. Whatley rolled a fair number cube 50 times.  Thenumber 4 came up 10 times.  Calculate the theoretical & experimental probabilities of rolling a 4 in simplest form.Experimental Probability Anthony is going to spin the 6-sectioned spinner below to see if he really will get the colorYellow 1/6 of the time. How many times should he spin the spinner for the outcome of his experiment to best match his theory?60 spins6 spins600 spins1 spin
