The table below shows the results of an experiment in which a number cube was tossed 20 times.

Outcome of toss: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Number of times

Outcome Occurred: 4 1 5 5 2 3

(table reads: outcome of toss 1=4number of times,2=1,3=5,4=5,5=2,and6=3)

Based on these results, if the same number cube was tossed 240 times, about how many times could the outcome 5 be expected?

some loaded dice!

Since 5 occurred 2 times in 20 throws, that's 10%

so, what's 10% of 240 throws?

so we are looking at 24 times an outcome of 5 can be expected?
