The table shows the results of rolling a number cube, with sides labeled 1 through 6, several times.
What is the experimental probability of rolling a 3 or a 6?
Express your answer in simplest form.
Outcome 1 2 3 4 5 6
Number of times outcome occurred 10 6 4 8 6 6
The answer has to be a fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so there were 4 3s and 6 6s... great what was the total number of rolls..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oi vey, I mean the number of times 3 and 6 occured is 10..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or... how many rolls made up the experiment

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I added up the numbers each occured, and got 40, so I'll assume that's how many rolls.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would the fraction be 1/4 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great so P(3 or 6) = 10/40 now simplify the fraction
