- Three-Act Task: Yellow Starburst. (all below)

1. Guess how many of those packs will have exactly one yellow Starburst, Two yellow Starbursts.

2. For each guess, write down answers you know are too high. Too low.

3. What information will you need to get an answer?

2. For each guess, write down answers you know are too high. Too low.

3. What information will you need to get an answer?

4. What assumptions about Starbursts are built into your answer?

5. How would knowing the frequency of Starburst colors in this sample change your answer?

Carefully, open your packages, noting the color combinations of each. You MUST attend to precision for this task to work. Keep your two starbursts together, just in case there are any problems with your data (this way you can double check!).

You will enter your data on this spreadsheet, so we can talk about the math.

Let's view the video below and look at this picture to see how our sample compares to Mr. Meyer's.

6. How close was our answer to the actual answer from Mr. Meyer's Trial? Calculate the percent error.

7. What is the ratio of yellow to the other colors?

8. What is the ratio of yellow to each of the individual colors?

9. Can we assume that if we got a big bag of individual starbursts we would have the same ratio?
