In this experiment, you will be using two coins as a simulation for a real-world compound event. Suppose that a family has an equally likely chance of having a cat or a dog. If they have two pets, they could have 1 dog and 1 cat, they could have 2 dogs, or they could have 2 cats.

    2. Describe how to use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has. 3. Flip both coins 50 times and record your data in a table like the one below. Result Frequency Heads, Heads  17 Heads, Tails  10 Tails, Heads  9 Tails, Tails  14 Total 50 4. Based on your data, what is the experimental probability that the family has two dogs or two cats? 5. If the family has three pets, what is the theoretical probability that they have three dogs or three cats? 6. How could you change the simulation to generate data for three pets?

    2. Describe how to use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has. let # of heads represent # of dogs # of tails represent # of cats use as many coins as there are pets in a family. In this case, use 2 coins flip the two coins many times and record the results the probability of a family having two dogs will be the number of times 2 heads appeared divided by the total number of flips

    4. Based on your data, what is the experimental probability that the family has two dogs or two cats? get the number of times two heads showed up add to that the number of times two tails showed up divide that sum by 50 (the total number of flips) that is the experimental probability that a family has two dogs or two cats
