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. @dan815 @uybuyvf @Hero @ganeshie8 @LynFran @Mehek14 @nandabo_ @pooja195 @teagirl7630 @imqwerty @zepdrix

    this 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.

    okay 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

    now with 2 coins instead of , dog and cat, u have heads and tails

    so the theoretical probability of there being 2 cats/2 dogs is 50%

    oh 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

    and over time it will be half the time for every 2 flips

    and 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%

    well 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

    is number 5 33% or did u put that and it was wrong? numbers 4-6: 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?

    1. 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.
