how many times does "lose a turn" come up?

how about "back 3"
Foxythepirate0984

jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so there are 2 spaces out of 6 2/6 = 1/3
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
1/3 is the probability of landing on either "lose a turn" or "back 3"
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
multiply that probability with the number of spins (36)
Foxythepirate0984
  • Foxythepirate0984
1/3 x 36 = 3?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
incorrect
Foxythepirate0984
  • Foxythepirate0984
16?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
it might help to think of 1/3 as 0.3333 (approximate)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
1/3 times 36 = 0.3333 times 36 = ???

11.9988
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
round that to the nearest whole number
Foxythepirate0984

umm 19?

no

  • jim_thompson5910
I would appreciate it if you didn't randomly guess
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
11.9988 has the whole part of "11" the number 11.9988 is between 11 and 12

12?
