### Description

A quick resource to examine the differences between theoretical and experimental probability.

## Resource summary

### Question 1

Question
Experimental Probability of an event is an [blank_start]"estimate"[blank_end] of the likelihood that the event will happen based on [blank_start]how often the event occurs[blank_end] when collecting data or running an experimen
• "estimate"
• how often the event occurs

### Question 2

Question
True or False: Theoretical Probability of an event is the number of ways an event can occur, divided by the number of ways it doesn't occur.
• True
• False

### Question 3

Question
Playing the lottery. Will I win the jackpot? This is an example of a random experiment. True or False
• True
• False

### Question 4

Question
[blank_start]Theoretical Probability[blank_end] is based on what we know about the properties of the event and is determined WITHOUT conducting an experiment.
• Theoretical Probability

### Question 5

Question
Which of the following is an example of experimental probability?
• Flipping a coin three times to see how many times it lands on heads.
• Knowing the probability of getting a six on a number cube is 1/6 and using that to determine the number of times you'll get a six when tossing a number cube 3 times.
