Probability
by: John Lagnese (almost 3 years ago)

Description

This data was estimated from last year's lab on tossing a coin. Each group tossed the coin 100 times. The totals percentages were 49.6 to 50.4. This was done with 4 classes of approximately 105 total students. I did not use that many in this simulation.

While viewing the histogram grouped by heads determine what was the total number of heads obtained during any individual trial.

While viewing the histogram grouped by tails determine the largest number of tails obtained during any individual trial.

While viewing the table determine the slope of the heads line. Use the formula Y2 - Y1/ X2 - X1.

While viewing the table determine the slope of the tails line.  Use the formula Y2 - Y1/ X2 - X1.

How do these slopes relate?
