# EXPERIMENTAL PROBABILITY PROBLEMS WORKSHEET

Problem 1 :

Find the experimental probability of

a) tossing a head with one toss of a coin if it falls 96 heads in 200 tosses.

b) Rolling a six with a die given when it was rolled 300 times, a six occurred 54 times.

Solution

Problem 2 :

Find the experimental probability of rolling an odd number with a die if an odd number occurred 33 times when the die was rolled 60 times.

Solution

Problem 3 :

Clem fired 200 arrows at a target and hit the target 168 times. Find the experimental probability of Clem hitting the target.

Solution

Problem 4 :

Ivy has free range hens. Out of the first 123 eggs that they laid she found that 11 had double yolks. Calculate the experimental probability of getting a double yolk egg from her hens.

Solution

Problem 5 :

Jackson leaves for work at the same time each day. Over the period of 227 working days on his way to work he had to wait for the train at the railway crossing on 58 days. Calculate the experimental probability that Jackson has to wait for the train on his way to work.

Solution
