### How do you find experimetal probability?

Experimental probability is calculated by taking the data
produced from a performed experiment and calculating probability
from that data. An example would be flipping a coin. The
theoretical probability of landing on heads is 50%, .5 or 1/2, as
is the theoretical probability of landing on tails. If during an
experiment, however, a coin is flipped 100 times and lands on heads
60 times and tails 40 times, the experimental probability for this
experiment for landing on heads is 60%, .6 or 6/10. The
experimental probability of landing on tails would be 40%, .4, or
6/10.

### What is the probability of rolling a 4 on a number cube and flipping tails on a coin?

The probability of rolling any number on a cube can be
represented by the formula: X / the number of variables. Since any
cube has 6 sides, the probability of rolling any of the numbers 1
through 6 on the cube, can be represented by the formula: X = 1 /
6
= 16.66%
The odds or probability of flipping a coin and landing it on
either side can be represented by X = the requested result / the
number of variables
= 1 /2
= 50%
Therefore, given the two questions of probability, there is a
much greater chance of landing a coin on "tails" rather than
rolling a "4".

### What are all the possible outcomes for flipping or tossing three coins a dime a nickel and a penny in an organized manner and how would a tree diagram show these results?

There are eight possible results when flipping three coins
(eliminating the highly unlikely scenario of one or more coins
landing on their edge): Dime - Heads / Nickel - Heads / Penny -
Heads Dime - Heads / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Tails Dime - Heads /
Nickel - Tails / Penny - Heads Dime - Heads / Nickel - Tails /
Penny - Tails Dime - Tails / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Heads Dime -
Tails / Nickel - Heads / Penny - Tails Dime - Tails / Nickel -
Tails / Penny - Heads Dime - Tails / Nickel - Tails / Penny -
Tails
