N= number of dinasours F=frequency
1)What was the theoretical probability of collecting a specific dinosaur, such as a Velociraptor, in a single purchase?
2)How many spins did it take before you had at least one of each dinosaur in Trial 1? Trial 2? Trial 3?
3)How does the number of spins correlate to the number of boxes of cereal that you would need to purchase?
4)What was the experimental probability for each dinosaur from Trial 1? Trial 2? Trial 3?
5)How does the experimental probability of getting each dinosaur differ from the theoretical probability? Here, you are comparing the experimental vs. theoretical probability of getting each type of dinosaur in a single purchase. In other words, you are determining the probability for a single event, not a compound event.
6)If someone bought eight boxes of cereal and got all eight dinosaurs, would you be surprised? Why or why not?
7)How did the experimental probabilities change between the trials?
8)What are the advantages of using a simulation versus actually buying boxes of cereal?
