WILL MEDAL AND FAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
1. What is the theoretical probability that the family has two dogs or two cats?
2. Describe how to use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is what i put for #2: 2. Describe how to use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has. I can use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has by letting heads represent how many dogs there are and letting tails represent how many cats there are.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3okay so Pet 1 is either a Dog or a Cat and Pet 2 is either a Dog or a cat you need to see what prob is it where they are both dogs or both cats

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3now with 2 coins instead of , dog and cat, u have heads and tails

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the theoretical probability of there being 2 cats/2 dogs is 50%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you repeat the same thing with heads and tails as dogs and cats

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3oh muscrat what u can do is, basically flip coins a bunch of times and see the probability u are getting 2 heads and 2 tails

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3and over time it will be half the time for every 2 flips

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3and u can talk about why this is happening by drawing a tree diagram, or using some other method to show why the theoretical prob is 50%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3well you see in part 3) they are flipping coins 50 times and recording the data, they are trying to show you that the experimental probability will start to follow the theoretical prob

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is number 5 33% or did u put that and it was wrong? numbers 46: 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. What is the theoretical probability that the family has two dogs or two cats? 1/2 2. Describe how to use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has. For the stimulation heads will be cat and tails will be dog, so if you get something like two heads that will mean two cats . 4. Based on your data, what is the experimental probability that the family has two dogs or two cats? 27/50 or 54%. 6. How could you change the simulation to generate data for three pets? I would change the amount of coins to three.
