statistics homework help A drinking game involves a 14 sided die. Six of the 14 faces are squares A, B, C, D, E,and F for short. The other eight are triangles which are called 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, and 8. Each of the squares is equally likely. but he triangle probability differs from the square. The probability of getting a square is 0.72. Give the probability for the 14 outcomes.

prob square = .72
then prob of triangle is 1.72 = .28
prob(each of the particular squares) = .72/6 = .12
prob(each of the particular triangles = .28/8 = .035
note 8(.035) + 6(312) = 1 
145
