Students will learn how to use relative frequency tables to answer questions about independent events, whether the event is repeated or not. For example, the table may be given with a missing probability value, which students must deduce by adding all the other probabilities, then subtracting that from \(1.\) Or they might be asked how many times an inpependent event is likely to happen if it's repeated say \(500\) times. Here's a lesson, and here's practice.
