Algebra II Journal: Reflection 4
Respond to the following activities in your Algebra II Journal and submit to your teacher.
Use this interactive version of the spinner to conduct a simulation to determine the probability that at least one game will be rained out in a threegame stretch.
Check Your Understanding
A copy of the table below appears in your Algebra II Journal. Use this table to record the outcomes of your simulation. Next, answer the following questions.
Trial 
Number of 
Trial 
Number of 









































 How many threeday stretches, out of twenty stretches (i.e., trials), resulted in at least one game being a rainout?
 How many stretches were complete rainouts (all three games were rained out)? Write your answer as a percent.
 In your simulation, you simulated a total of 60 games (20 threegame stretches). What percentage of the sixty games resulted in a rainout? Write your answer as a percent.
 How close was your answer in the previous bullet to the population mean of 20%?
