## (I flipped the coins already) Instructions In this experiment, you will be using two coins as a simulation for a real-world compound

Question

Instructions In this experiment, you will be using two coins as a simulation for a real-world compound event. Suppose that a family has an equally likely chance of having a cat or a dog. If they have two pets, they could have 1 dog and 1 cat, they could have 2 dogs, or they could have 2 cats.

1 What is the theoretical probability that the family has two dogs or two cats? Describe how to use two coins to simulate which two pets the family has.

Flip both coins 50 times and record your data in a table like the one below. Result Frequency Heads,

Tails Tails,26

Tails 15

Total 50
Based on your data, what is the experimental probability that the family has two dogs or two cats?
If the family has three pets, what is the theoretical probability that they have three dogs or three cats?

How could you change the simulation to generate data for three pets?

tails tails 26

Step-by-step explanation:

because the coins might not have different sides the probability of the coin landing on the same side 26 times is understandable

hope this helps
