If your probability assignments do not add up to one, the teaching team will normalize them. If you leave boxes blank and your assignments add up to less than one, we will distribute the remaining probability equally among the empty answer boxes. If your assignments add up to more than one and you have left boxes blank, we will normalize the non-blank boxes and place zeroes in the empty boxes.
