If you roll a die 48 times and 8 of the rolls result in a "5," what empirical probability was observed for the event "5"? (Give your answer correct to three decimal places.)

• Math -

from your experiment, the empirical prob of a 5 = 8/48 = 1/6

(btw, this matches the actual prob of rolling a 5 for a true die)
