**drwls**, Thursday, March 18, 2010 at 11:19amThe empirical probability, which is "what you measured by experiment" is 12/38 = 6/19, with 38 tosses.

If you had rolled the die thousands of times, you should have approached a probability of 1/6, if the die was not "loaded".

It is not unusual to get different empirical values tfrom the true probability, when there are relatively few samples.
