Today in class we talked about the "Is It Fair" game. Just so you know, the game was

**not**fair. He asked us how we could make the game fair. Then we had to find the answer. Those who had an answer had to stand on their chair. It was very interesting =/Here's how to find the answer: since the PLAYER didn't have a lot of numbers to work with, we decided that a fair chance. Therefore, they both had to have fair number to work with.

36 possible out comes

36 possible out comes

2/36 = 18 they both had to have number with enough possibilities to equal 18

eg: 6, 8, 9, 10, 12 - there are 5 ways to make 6

5 ways to make 8

4 ways to make 9

3 ways to make 10

1 way to make 12

5 ways to make 8

4 ways to make 9

3 ways to make 10

1 way to make 12

If you add that up, the sum is 18. Whats left is 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, & 11. The sum of those numbers possibilities, is also 18.

Next, we were given a worksheet on probability gumball experiment. We had had to pull colored cubes from a bucket and record how many times a certain colour came out.

Then based on the data we had collected, we had to finish questions 6, 7, and 8. For homework, answer these 2 questions:

1) What is

**experimental**probability? 2) What is

**theoretical**probability?I choose

**to do the scribe post tomorrow!***Zerlina*I guess I'm done, so thanks so much for reading! Please tell me how I did OK? =)
