    i toss a die 10 times and get 3 "sixes" then the experimental probability of getting a "six" is 3/10

    . What formula is used to find the theoretical probability of an event? P(event) = n(event)/n(total)=n(E)/n(S) am i right?

    this is right if you are assuming that all events are equally likely, yes
