### Examples

*Example:*If Gabriella rolls a fair die 300 times, she can predict that she will roll a 3 approximately 50 times since the theoretical probability is .

*Example:* Sandra performs an experiment where she flips a coin three times. She finds the theoretical probability of landing on exactly one head as . If she performs this experiment 50 times (for a total of 150 flips), predict the number of repetitions of the experiment that will result in exactly one of the three flips landing on heads.

### Clarifications

*Clarification 1:*Instruction includes making connections to proportional relationships and representing probability as a fraction, percentage or decimal.

*Clarification 2: *Experiments to be repeated are limited to tossing a fair coin, rolling a fair die, picking a card randomly from a deck with replacement, picking marbles randomly from a bag with replacement and spinning a fair spinner.

*Clarification 3: *Repetition of experiments is limited to two times except for tossing a coin.
