Today in class, we pretend that a cup and a colorful cube inside it is a gumble machine. We had to guess what color would come out the most.

There are four blue cubes, three yellow cubes, two green cubes, and one red cube.

Theorotical Probability

red cube = 10 %
1 x 10 = 10 %


green cube = 20 %
2 x 10 = 20 %

yellow cube = 30 %
3 x 10 = 30 %

blue cube = 40 %
4 x 10 = 40 %

Favourable outcome / Total possible outcome




Experimental Probability

red cubes = 11/100
yellow cubes = 15/100

green cubes = 25/100
blue cubes = 49/100

favourable outcome / total possible outcome


( the more you get experiment the more closer you get to theorotical probability )




Today in class, we played a game called "is it fair?". Let me show you how to play the game.

First, you have to find a partner and you can choose whichever you want to be. A player or an opponent.
