Which of these numbers of simulations of the softball player hitting balls would be most likely to produce results that are closest to those predicted by probability? A. 70 B. 90 C. 100 D. 80

    it's easier than you might think :) when you're simulating something, the highest number of simulations will give you the results that are closest to the predicted value

    Okay, that makes sense, I think. Now how would I go about finding that highest number?

    Wait, C is the correct option just because it is highest?
