Walht: assign probabilities to simple events using fractions and percentages.

Today I was learning to assign probabilities to a game played with 2 10 sided dice. I played with Heather. We had to roll the dice, find the sum and determine whether it was a prime number. We alternated rolling the dice. We did this 20 times. We recorded our score in the outcomes column. Of the 20 attempts, we were successful 6 times. So the probability is 6/20 as a simple fraction and 30% as a percentage. Since we did similar games this week I have a better understanding of probability. Next, I ‘d like to try with a higher number of outcomes.
