**13-2 Probability Distributions and Frequency Tables**

2
Frequency Table: a data display that shows how often an item appears in a category Relative Frequency: the ratio of the frequency of the category to the total frequency

**Problem 1: Finding Relative Frequencies**

The results of a survey of students’ music preferences are organized in the frequency table. What is the relative frequency of preference for rock music? Type of Music Preferred Frequency Rock 10 Hip Hop 7 Country 8 Classical 5 Alternative 6 Other 4

**Type of Music Preferred**

What is the relative frequency of preference for Classical? Country? Type of Music Preferred Frequency Rock 10 Hip Hop 7 Country 8 Classical 5 Alternative 6 Other 4

**Problem 2: Calculating Probability by using Relative Frequencies**

A student conducts a probability experiment by tossing 3 coins one after another. Using the results shown, what is the probability that exactly two heads will occur in the next three tosses?

6
A student conducts a probability experiment by spinning the spinner shown. Using the results in the frequency table, what is the probability of the spinner pointing at 4 on the next spin?
