Jake tossed a paper cup 50 times and recorded how it landed. The table shows the results: Based on the table, determine the experimental probability of each outcome (landing open side up, landing closed side up, and landing on its side).

    total number of flips is 50 we're looking at 3 different experimental probabilities here: 1. landing open side up = (# of times it landed open sided up)/50 2. landed closed side up = (# of times it landed closed side up)/50 3. landed on its side = (# of times it landed on its side)/50 use the table to fill in the values

    let's take it one step at a time, then first, let's find the experimental probability of landing open side up how many times did the cup land open side up? (look at the table)

    right, so what is the probability of landing open side up?

    good, 2/50 now, what is the probability of landing closed side up?

    right, 6/50, which can also be simplified to 3/25 what is the probability of landing on its side?

    right, we can also write 42/50 as 21/25 that's it, we're done ~
