A coin was flipped 150 times. The results of the experiment are shown in the following table:
Heads Tails
90 60
Which of the following best describes the experimental probability of getting heads?
It is 10% higher than the theoretical probability.
It is 10% lower than the theoretical probability.
It is equal to the theoretical probability for this data.
The experimental probability cannot be concluded from the data in the table.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so you said it would be 50/50 right? The coin was flipped 150 times 150/2=75 90 is more than 10% higher than 75....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm just trying to understand. The other girl that came on my old question just shot the answer out I really just need help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this problem from the textbook or did the teacher write it or something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually the 10% is just a rough estimate, so it's not the exact answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was leaning more towards D because either way, 10% higher & 10% lower aren't even close to 90.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually it is pretty close to 90. 10% of 75 is 7.5 so 75+7.5=82.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The experimental chance is 90/150 which is 60% right, and then the theoretical of probability is half the chance or 50% so what can we conclude?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The theoretical is 50% because you can either get a heads or tails, so it gives us a 50/50 chance, I hope this makes sense
