Unformatted text preview: I would consider an average success rate of 70%, with a range of 2535 to be convincing evidence. 3. An example of a Bernoulli trial is the game of Craps. Played with 2 dice, a Craps player wants to roll a specific combination, for example 2 of the same number. In this case, success is landing both dice on the same number, for which the probability (p) of success is 6/36 or 0.167. In a game involving 30 rolls of the dice, n = 30, and X is the number of successes in each game. In a casino with 20 Craps tables working at the same time, a histogram of the number of successes at each table would most likely show a distribution of between 2 and 8 successes per game at each table, with 4, 5, and 6 being the most common number of successes....
