bailey uses the results from an experiment to calculate the probability of each color of block being chosen from a bucket. he says P(red)=35%, P(blue)=45%, and P(yellow)=20%. jarod uses theoretical probability because he knows how many of each color block is in the bucket. he says P(red)=45%, P(blue)=35%, and P(yellow)=20%. on bailey's turn, he predicts blue. on jarod's turn, he predicts red. neither boy makes the right prediction.
