A die is thrown 300 times and the outcomes are noted as given below:

Outcome | Frequency |
---|---|

1 | 60 |

2 | 72 |

3 | 54 |

4 | 42 |

5 | 39 |

6 | 33 |

When a die is thrown at random, what is the probability of getting a

(i) 3?

(ii) 6?

(iii) 5?

(iv) 1?

Answer:

It is given that

Number of trials = 300

Consider E1, E2, E3 and E4 as the events

(i) So we get

P (E1) = number of times 3 head/ number of trials

By substituting the values

P (E1) = 54/ 300

We get

P (E1) = 0.18

(ii) So we get

P (E2) = number of times 6 head/ number of trials

By substituting the values

P (E2) = 33/ 300

We get

P (E2) = 0.11

(iii) So we get

P (E3) = number of times 5 head/ number of trials

By substituting the values

P (E3) = 39/ 300

We get

P (E3) = 0.13

(iv) So we get

P (E4) = number of times 2 head/ number of trials

By substituting the values

P (E4) = 60/ 300

We get

P (E4) = 0.2
