am i correct.

Just to let you know, i am really bad at math:(

**DragonBornFU5R0D48**, Friday, June 6, 2014 at 10:48pm1)20% chance of spinning each one

2)= 40 40% *20=8

3)since there are 4 outcomes, theoretical = 25% my changed answer is 25%.28+22+34+16= 100 100 / 4 = 25%

4)my changed answer 3 15% of 20=3

5)20=2 50=5 2*5=10 A

6)24000 / 600 = 40

7)self explanatory

8)apple+apricot =6 10 all together 6/10=3/5

9)since a coin flip is random,it is a higher probability of the outcome to be H T H or B

10)since it says less than 5 and there is 6 sides on a dice all together, it is 5/6.

PLEASE CHECK

There are 4 colours, multiplied by 20% gives only 80%, where do the remaining 20% go?

Experimental probability goes with the outcome of experiments. Think along those lines.

2)

40% is correct, as you said 40%*20=8, or working directly, 8÷20=40%.

3)

Theoretical is 25% (100/4).

Experimental is what? Then choose a correct answer.

4)

15% of 20 = 3 times

is correct.

5)

Correct, calculate by proportion,

or 50 tickets * 20% = 10 .

6)

Remember they found 5 defective toys out of 600.

7)

Independent means one outcome does not affect the other.

If you think it is self-explanatory, it seems that you understand the idea.

8)

What you 3/5 is the correct answer for a different problem, namely picking*either*an apple*or*an apricot.

The question requires picking an apple first, then an apricot on the second draw.

The two draws are independent steps.

The probability of succeeding both steps is the product of succeeding each step.

There is a total of 10 fruit pieces.

P(Apple)=4/10

P(Apricot)=2/10

So P(Apple*then*Apricot)

= P(Apple)*P(Apricot)

=?

9)

There are 2 outcomes for each flip, and there are 2³=8 outcomes if it's flipped three times.

Enumerate the 8 outcomes and count how many of them are HTH, and how many of them are HHH.

(Ignore my previous answer to this problem, I misinterpreted the problem)

10)

Again, this is a two step experiment, tossing a coin and throwing a die.

Find and post the probability of success for each step. Now since the two steps are independent, the probabilities of the two steps may be multiplied together to get the final probability.
