The theoretical probability of getting a ball into a cup is 33% if you can throw the ball from starting 8|dw:1433994497033:dw||dw:1433994511981:dw| locations and has to land in a cup when it consists of 24 cups.
There are 24 cups and the goal is to land in 8 specific cups?
so there is a carnival game where you have to get a ball and throw it from a hole carved into a board (which there are 8 of), after that you have to get the ball into one of the 24 cups, which are arranged in rectangles
and then I have to find a theoretical probability based on the statements which i am guessing is a 33% chance of getting the ball into any cup because 8/24 = 1/3
That sounds right, but I'm not certain. Is there a way to see a picture of this.
Well, there are two assumptions we have to state for it to be valid: 1) It must land in one of the cups and no other cups. 2) The probability of landing into each cup is equiprobable.
If 2 is not stated, then we need a probability distribution to justify any probability calculation.
It sounds like there are two stages to this throw. First the ball has to go through a board of 8 holes , then it has to enter one of 24 cups. But I could be misreading it.
