Definition of Experimental Probability
- Experimental probability of an event is the ratio of the number of times the event occurs to the total number of trials.
Examples of Experimental Probability
- Sam rolled a number cube 50 times. A 3 appeared 10 times.
Then the experimental probability of rolling a 3 is 10 out of 50 or 20%.
Solved Example on Experimental Probability
A coin is tossed 60 times. 27 times head appeared. Find the experimental probability of getting heads.
Correct Answer: B
Step 1: Experimental probability = number of times the event occurs / total number of trials.
Step 2: Number of times heads appeared = 27.
Step 3: Total number of experiments = 60.
Step 4: So, experimental probability of getting a head =
