Elizabeth wants to use a standard number cube to do a simulation for a scenario that involves three equal outcomes. What is one way in which she can do this?

  • Math (PROBABILITY) -

    You need to simulate a situation that has three EQUAL outcomes
    6 sides divided by 3 equals 2 sides per outcome

    Allocate 1 & 2 to represent event A
    Allocate 3 & 4 to represent event B
    Allocate 5 & 6 to represent event C

    Roll the cube and if it comes up 1 or 2 it is event A, 3 or 4 it is event B, 5 or 6 and it is event C.
