A loaded die has been weighted to cause certain numbers to come up more frequently than others. A die was rolled 100 times. the results are shown in the table. ( i will draw that ) a) determine the experimental probability of each outcome. b) what is the theoretical probability of each outcome? c) could the die be "loaded" ? explain d) what could you do to verify your conclusion part c) ?

    \[Outcome = 1 2 3 4 5 6 , frequency = 3 22 6 36 16 17\]

    can you put spaces in between the frequency values?

    ok !! outcome = 1 2 3 4 5 6 frequency = 3 22 6 36 16 17

    A) Experimental probability is the probability of each occurrence based on the table alone 1 3/100 2 11/50 3 3/50 4 9/25 5 4/25 6 17/100

    The theoretical is what you'd expect with an "unloaded," or fair dice

    the theoretical probability of each outcome should then be 1/6

    For c: Yes, the die could be loaded. 4 showed up much more than would be theoretically predicted and 1 much less

    For D: To prove this, we would need to roll the dice a very large number of times. As the number of trials gets very large, the experimental probability should become closer to the experimental if the dice is fair

    That does sound like absolute BS. Hopefully you're allowed to be a cynic about the current state of the American dream...

    Given that prompt, I'd go with the calculus too
