1
Experimental Probability

2
Experimental Probability the likelihood of an event is estimated by repeating an experiment many times and observing the number of times the event happens

3
**Number of times the event occurs**

PROBABILITY = Number of times the event occurs total number of trials

4
**You must conduct an experiment in order to determine the experimental probability!**

5
Let’s do an experiment in order to find the experimental probability of rolling certain numbers on a die!

6
Draw this table. My results Roll Tally Marks Frequency 1 2 3 4 5 6

7
Directions: 1. Roll the die on your desk. 2. Mark your result on the table. 3. Do this 20 times!!

8
**When you have reached 20……STOP!**

Put your die down on your desk and do not play with it!

9
**Questions: You must write the following questions and then answer them.**

10
**What were the possible outcomes when rolling a die?**

11
**2. Compare your table with a neighbor. Did they get the same results**

2. Compare your table with a neighbor. Did they get the same results? Why or why not?

12
**3. Using your data, what is the P(1)?**

13
4. What is P(2)?

14
5. What is P(3)?

15
6. What is P(4)?

16
7. What is P(5)?

17
8. What is P(6)?

18
9. What is P(7)?

19
**10. Now, add up your answers for questions 3 – 8. What do you notice?**
