Q:
# a container of beads contains: 8 red beads, 6 yellow beads, and 6 green beads. a bead will be drawn from the basket and replaced 60 times. what is a reasonable prediction for the number of times a green or red bead is drawn

Accepted Solution

A:

Because of probability, a green or red bead would be drawn 14/20 times because there are 20 total beads and adding together the numbers for green and red. From this, if you multiply by 3/3 you can see that 42/60 times it will be a green bead. A reasonable prediction for green beads would then be 42 times.
