#### Understanding

The *frequency* is just the count for how many times a color was drawn. The relative *frequency* is how many times a certain color jellybean occurred divided by the total number of jellybeans drawn.

### What to look for

Students recognize that the relative frequency of an outcome is likely to be close to the actual probability of that outcome as the number of repetitions gets larger and larger (the law of large numbers).### Sample Assessment

If you knew the sample space consisted of four outcomes, which of the following is true?

a. The probability of each outcome is 0.25.

Answer: False

b. The sum of the probabilities of each outcome is 1.

Answer: True

c. None of the probabilities of the outcomes is

greater than 0.5.

Answer: False

d. The probability of one outcome is 0.25.

Answer: False
