Check Your Understanding
Khalid, Justyce, Andrew, Marissa and Allyson determine that they have created a fair game. Based on the probabilities, they notice that in each of the three age groups, the probability of winning two candies is higher than the probability of winning in the other scenarios. The number of bags people get into the hole and where they stand are dependent events, and they feel this staggering of distances creates a fair yet challenging game.
