E-5: Discovering Compound Theoretical Probability Through Experiments

Guided Practice:

Below I have included all of the individual probabilities for the experiments you conducted in Section E-3 and Section E-4.  See if you can find a relationship between the individual theoretical probabilities and the final experimental compound probability (the video will help, or perhaps give the answer away 🙂 )

Copy the chart and see if you can fill in the final column:
