Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no im just saying b/c thats non specific question. you dont find it, its a way of thinking that can relate to possible answers, get what im saying ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorta. but my school says this is how u find it and i dont understand \[\frac{ outcomes }{ number~of~possible~outcomes }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2a coin can fall on either heads or tails.... (right?) So how many possible outsomes is there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... experimental probability. Do you know what this term means?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the number of desired outcomes divided by the total # of trials. what is a desired outcome? and the total # of trials is what? in this case

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the desired number of outcomes varies. the total number fo trials is 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the I mean number of desired outcomes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For a question: 2. What is the experimental probability that a coin toss results in two heads showing? desired outcome is when both coins lands on heads. the number of desired outcomes, is the number of times when both coins landed on heads. the total number of trials is the number times you have tossed (i.e. 100)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Number of ways to succeed is one Number of possible outcomes is two Probability of getting heads is 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 32 / 100 for theoretical probability?

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2number of desired outcomes / total number of trials is experimental probability

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is your exact question given to you? c:

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so experimental probability (for question 2) is: (if you don't remember question 2, please read it) \(P=\rm (number~of~desired~outcomes)/(total~number~of~trials)\) \(P=\rm (32)/(100)\) \(P=\rm 0.32~~~~~or,~~8/25\)

muscrat123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i said 32/100 first!!!

muscrat123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its 32% for the theoretical probability, yes?

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and that is experimental probability for tossing both coins tails

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i confused the info 2 tails = 28 times 2 heads = 32 times

SolomonZelman
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, for question 2 it is 32% and for question 4 it is ? (do the same thing as we did for question 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2u know what "theoretical probability" is?

muscrat123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no..that was my initial question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0theoretical probability is what you expect to happen if you toss a coin P(head) = 1/2 and P(tail) = 1/2 its as simple as that

SolomonZelman
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2theoretical probability. We don't look at any experiments that took place before. How many outcomes does a paticular operation (for ex. tossing a coin) can have? Now, what are the chances that it will behave in a particular way? The coin example: A coin can land on either heads or tails. What is a chance that coin lands on tails? It is 1/2.... So the theoretical probability of the coin landing on tails is 1/2.

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2What is the chance that both coins will land on heads? The first coin has a 1/2 (or 50%) chance of landing on heads. The second coin has a 1/2 (or 50%) chance of landing on heads as well. But these are dependent events (since you want both of these to occur, so that both coins land on heads). This means that we multiply the probabilities/chances. ½ • ½ = ¼ (or 25%)

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Again, we aren't looking at how many times you have tossed the coins. The experiment is IRRELEVANT to any theoretical probability question that you have.

Kash_TheSmartGuy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Suppose you have a coin and your favor is to have tails. The theoretical probability would be: \[\frac{ Possible FovorableOutcomes }{ Number Of Outcomes }\]So that would result in a theoretical probability of \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\]

muscrat123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nevermind. i figured it out on my own. and it would be 33.3% , not 50% bc there are 3 possible outcomes
