- The student will compare empirical data and a theoretical distribution to determine if everyday experiment fits a discrete distribution.
- The student will demonstrate an understanding of long-term probabilities.

**Procedure: **The experiment procedure is to pick one card from a deck of shuffled cards.

- The theoretical probability of picking a diamond from a deck is:
- Shuffle a deck of cards and pick one card from it and record whether it was a diamond or not a diamond.
- Put the card back and reshuffle.
- Do this a total of 10 times and record the number of diamonds picked.
- What is the experimental probability of drawing a diamond?
- How does the experimental probability compare to the theoretical probability? (high/low/about the same)

Using Minitab, simulate this experiment (drawing a card 10 times and recording the number of diamonds) for a total of 50 times. **Use Calc -> Random data -> Binomia**l.
