In your last 23 basketball games, you attempted 101 free throws and made 66. Find the experimental probability that you make a free throw. Write the probability as a percent, to the nearest tenth of a percent. Please no answers given just trying to find the equation and help me find the answer myself.

    experimental probability is found by taking the number of successful free throws and dividing by the total number of free throws.

    then convert to a percent, rounding to the nearest 10th of a percent

    For example, if you wanted to find the experimental probability that you could sink a game-winning shot by hurling the ball the length of the court, you might spend an hour in the gym trying it. If you threw the ball down the court 150 times, and you made the basket 2 times, your experimental probability would be 2/150 = 0.013333 or about 1.3%.

    that isn't one of my choice options for an answer

    I know 65.7 isn't correct as well.

    I was doing an example, so I wouldn't expect to find the answer to my example in your problem's answer choices...

    there would be very little value in my simply telling you the answer to your problem...but by showing you how to work a similar problem, hopefully you can understand what to do with your problem...

    yeah that's the problem I have with some of these questions is trying to find the equation to work it out to get my answer

    I gave you the equation in the first post, though I used words rather than mathematical symbols.

    that's fine I can try to work this out thank you very much

    if I did this right then my answer would be 65.3. Right
