## Related Questions 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. the probability of tossing a coin and it landing on head is a 1 in 2 chance the probability of rolling a 5 on a dice is a 1 in 6 chance Coin landing of heads = 1/2 (either heads or tails) Dice landing on even number = 1/2 (no matter how many faces there are on the dice unless the number of faces is odd, 6 sided=3 even sides/6) Since there are 6 possible outcomes, and you want the probability of obtaining one of the outcomes (in your case 6), the probability of it landing on a 6 is 1/6.  Generally you should express it as a number between 0 (impossible) and 1 (absolute certainty). Either as a decimal or fraction is OK. For example, the probability of a fair coin toss landing on heads is 0.5. The probability of a fair die landing on 4 is 1/6. But it's also common to see probability written as a percentage between 0% (impossible) and 100% (absolute certainty). So P(coin landing on heads)=50.0% and P(die landing on 4)=16.7%.  Probability is the likelihood that something will occur. If you subtract it from 1, we get the likelihood (or probability) that it will not occur. If a coin is tossed and rolls heads 6 times, the (empirical) probability of obtaining a head is 6/10 or .6. 1-.6 =.4 is the empirical probability (or likelihood) of not getting a head. The probability of flipping a quarter and getting heads is 1 in 2. the probability of rolling a die and getting 6 is 1 in 6. On a 6-sided die, the probability of not having a six is 5/6, or 83 1/3 % Assuming that it is a regular shaped spinner, the probability is 1/6*1/6 = 1/36   There is a 1/6 chance of rolling a 4 on a fair die, and a 1/2 chance of a fair coin landing heads up. Multiply 1/6 X 1/2. The probability of both happening is 1/12. only about 75% because very often it is not equal The probability of 3 heads and 3 tails is 0.3125  It is neither. If you repeated sets of 8 tosses and compared the number of times you got 6 heads as opposed to other outcomes, it would comprise proper experimental probability.   The faces greater than 2 are 3, 4, 5 and 6 ; that's 4/6 = 2/3 A flipped coin will be Heads 1/2 and Tails 1/2 Combining these we have a probability of 1/2 times 2/3 = 1/3 So the probability of the combined events is 1/3 or 33.3(recurring)% A die normally has 6 sides numbered 1 through 6. The probability of you landing on ANY number is 1:6, or you have a 1 in 6 chance of landing a 3. The probability of tossing 6 heads in 6 dice is 1 in 26, or 1 in 64, or 0.015625. THe probability of doing that at least once in six trials, then, is 6 in 26, or 6 in 64, or 3 in 32, or 0.09375. First event is to roll a 3 or 6 on a die, which gives you a probability of 2 out of 6. Second event is tossing a heads on a coin, so a probability of 1 out of 2. Since both chances are not related, you can multiply both chances: 2/6 times 1/2 = 1/6 = 0,166666... Probability of coin heads up: 1/2 Rolling a 4 or 5 on the cube: 2/6 1/2 times 2/6 = 2/12, or 1/6. The probability of flipping a heads is 1/2 and the probability of rolling a 6 is 1/6. By the laws of probability it would be logical to multiply them together, (1/2)(1/6) thus the answer being 1/12 with is roughly eight percent.
