Define Theoritical Probability

Theoritical Probability is what should happen.

Red 1 - 10% Green 2 - 20% Yellow 3 - 30% Blue 4 - 40%

Define Experimental Probabiltity

Experimental Probability is what really happens.

* The more you experiment the close you get to theoritical probability.

*Which Italian Insects Often Fall in Love?*

**1. Each time you spin this spinner how many likely outcomes are there?**

likely outcomes = TOTAL POSSIBLE OUTCOMES = 10

**2. Find each probability if you spin the spinner once.**

a. P(even number)

a. P(even number)

= 4/10 because in the spinner they're are 4 even numbers and the total possible outcome is 10. You can also say 2/5 because it is the same as 4/10 it is just simplified. You can get 2/5 by dividing the numerator and denominator by 2. Lastly, you can say 40% because that is the percent of the fraction. You get that by dividing 4 and 10 which equals 0.4 then you x it by 100 and it will = 40%.

**b. P(odd number)**

= 5/10 because in the spinner they're are 5 odd numbers and the total possible outcome is 10. You can also say 1/2 because it is the same as 5/10 it is just simplified. You can get 1/2 by dividing the numerator and denominator by 2. Lastly, you can also say 50% because that is the percent of the fraction. You get that by dividing 5 and 10 which equals 0.5 then you x it by 100 and it will = 50%.

**c. P("A")**

= 1/10 because in the spinner there is only one "A" and the total possible outcome is 10. You can also say 10% because that is the percent of the fraction. You get that by dividing 1 and 10 which equals 0.1 then you x it by 100 and it will = 40%.

**3. If you spin the spinner 100 times, about how many times would you expect it to stop on:**

**a. an even number b. an odd number.**

It will be 50 for both, because it is based on 100 and there is only two possible outcomes. You get 50 by dividing 100 by 2 and it will equal 50.
