Scratch file designed by Linda Fahlberg-Stojanovska.
We have 6 balls - 3 Reds and 3 Greens. We drop them randomly into 3 boxes.
The following two events are mutually exclusive and complete.
(b) box 2G, box 2R, box 1R&1G.
Do the experiment 500-1000 times.
Now for some dreaded theory ...
Suppose you drop two same colored balls into the first box.
Suppose you drop two different colored balls into the first box.
*Does your theory match your experiment?
"Mutually exclusive" meaning both events cannot happen at same time and "complete" meaning no other event can occur.
