Your Guess? 
Using masking tape, make the figure shown below on the floor.
The bar graph below shows the number of times a beanbag landed in each box after 100 tosses at the center box of the figure.
What if you tossed a beanbag at the center box thirty times? What is your prediction for the number of times the beanbag will land in each box?
Standing at a distance of eight feet, group members take turns tossing a beanbag at box C. When all group members have had ten tosses, make a graph showing the results. Was your prediction close?
