Question

# A frog is sitting exactly in the middle of a board that is five feet long.

Every ten seconds he jumps one foot either left or right, at random. You want to use simulation to estimate the probability that he jumps off the board in sixty seconds or less. (For example, if he jumps LLRLRL, he is still on the board, on the left-most square. If he jumps LLRLL, he has jumped off the board in fifty seconds.)

(a) Describe how you would use the digits of a random number table to simulate this chance process and estimate the probability.

(b) Use the random number table below to carry out five repetitions of the frog's jumps and give an estimate of the probability from those repetitions.
