There are 4 different colored candies in a bag. So, one should have a 25% chance of picking a particular color out of the bag. After pulling out 20 candies, Sally got 8 purples, which is 40%. Predict what will happen as Sally pulls out more candies.

  • math (incomplete) -

    There is a 25% chance for each color, only if there are equal amounts of each colored candy. Is that so?
