Ma/Stat416: Probability Computer Project Spring 2011 Due Thursday, May 5, 2011 (7:00pm) 1. The Dice Experiment . Roll two dice 100 times. (a) [5 points] What is the probability of getting a total of 12 or an absolute difference of 4? Compare the probability with the theoretical answer. (b) [5 points] What is the probability of getting at least one 6 or an absolute difference of 4? Compare the probability with the theoretical answer. To do this experiment visit http://random.org/dice/ or http://www2.whidbey.net/ohmsmath/webwork/javascript/dice2rol.htm . 2. The Cards Experiment . Draw 3 cards from a shuffled 13 deck of cards without replacement, repeat the process 99 times, a total of 100 times. (a) [5 points] What is the probability all three cards are not faces? Calculate the theo- retical answer. To do this experiment visit http://random.org/playing-cards/ or http://randomizer.org/ . (b) [5 points] Repeat the trial but this time with replacement.
