Bean Experimental and Theoretical Probability

Name: _________________________ Date:_________________ Period:__________

Directions: At this station you are going to find the theoretical and experimental probability of three different types of beans. In the center of the table you will see little cups filled with beans. Please select a cup from the center of the table. Without looking please select a bean from the cup and record your result on the table. Then replace the bean just pulled and without looking select another bean. Repeat this process until you have experimentally pulled 15 beans (making sure to replace the bean every time) and record your results on the table. After completing the 15 pulls please answer the following questions found below the table regarding your findings.

Bean Color

Results

Black

White

Brown

What is the experimental probability of selecting a black or white bean?

What is the theoretical probability of selecting a brown bean?
