Example Question #1 : Approximate The Probability Of A Chance Event By Collecting Data: Ccss.Math.Content.7.Sp.C.6

If John were to roll a die  times, roughly how many times would he roll a 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A die has  sides, with each side displaying a number between 

Let's first determine the probability of rolling a  after John rolls the die a single time.

There is a total of  sides on a die and only one value of  on one side; thus, our probability is:

This means that roughly  of John's rolls will be a ; therefore, in order to calculate the probability we can multiply  by —the number of times John rolls the die.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll a  roughly  times.

Let's first determine the probability of rolling a  or a  after John rolls the die a single time.

There is a total of  sides on a die and we have one value of  and one value of ; thus, our probability is:

This means that roughly  of John's rolls will be a  or a ; therefore, in order to calculate the probability we can multiply  by —the number of times John rolls the die.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll a  or a  roughly  times.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll a  or a  roughly  times. 

Example Question #5 : Approximate The Probability Of A Chance Event By Collecting Data: Ccss.Math.Content.7.Sp.C.6

If John were to roll a die  times, roughly how many times would he roll an even number?

 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A die has  sides, with each side displaying a number between 

Let's first determine the probability of rolling an even number after John rolls the die a single time.

There is a total of  sides on a die and  even numbers: ; thus, our probability is:

This means that roughly  of John's rolls will be an even number; therefore, in order to calculate the probability we can multiply  by —the number of times John rolls the die.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll an even number roughly  times. 

Example Question #6 : Approximate The Probability Of A Chance Event By Collecting Data: Ccss.Math.Content.7.Sp.C.6

If John were to roll a die  times, roughly how many times would he roll an odd number?

 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A die has  sides, with each side displaying a number between 

Let's first determine the probability of rolling an odd number after John rolls the die a single time.

There is a total of  sides on a die and  odd numbers: ; thus, our probability is:

This means that roughly  of John's rolls will be an odd number; therefore, in order to calculate the probability we can multiply  by —the number of times John rolls the die.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll an odd number roughly  times. 

Example Question #7 : Approximate The Probability Of A Chance Event By Collecting Data: Ccss.Math.Content.7.Sp.C.6

If John were to roll a die  times, roughly how many times would he roll a , a , or a

A die has  sides, with each side displaying a number between 

Let's first determine the probability of rolling a , a , or a  after John rolls the die a single time.

There is a total of  sides on a die and we have one value of , one value of  and one value of ; thus, our probability is:

This means that roughly  of John's rolls will be a , or a ; therefore, in order to calculate the probability we can multiply  by —the number of times John rolls the die.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll a , or a  roughly  times. 

Example Question #8 : Approximate The Probability Of A Chance Event By Collecting Data: Ccss.Math.Content.7.Sp.C.6

If John were to roll a die  times, roughly how many times would he roll an odd number or a 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A die has  sides, with each side displaying a number between 

Let's first determine the probability of rolling an odd number or a  after John rolls the die a single time.

There is a total of  sides on a die and  odd numbers:  and one ; thus, our probability is:

This means that roughly  of John's rolls will be an odd number or a ; therefore, in order to calculate the probability we can multiply  by —the number of times John rolls the die.

If John rolls a die  times, then he will roll an odd number or a  roughly  times.
