Unformatted text preview: probabilities weren’t close at all, keeping in mind that she had no results for two of the categories. In our 50 card trial our result came closer together. I received the probabilities 9/50, 6/50, 2/50, and 27/50 and my partner received 12/50, 12/50, 3/50, and 18/50. From the numbers given one can see that we were only off by about a 36 number range. If this experiment was conducted 1,000 times, the outcomes would be much closer to the theoretical probabilities found in part a. Keeping in mind that there is no exact probability still leaves space for trial of error. If repeated 1,000,000 times, this experiment would become almost exactly the proportions calculated for the theoretical probability of picking out heart and face cards. In conclusion it is proven that the more trials produced in an experiment the most likely the probabilities are to become close....
