**Consider two different dice in this exercise. One is a long die with 6 sides, the other a decahedron.**

a.

a.

**First consider the long die with 6 sides. Two of the sides are squares with 1 or 2 dots, the other 4 are rectangles with 3, 4, 5, or 6 dots. Determine whether you should assign equal probabilities to all 6 outcomes when this die is tossed. Explain why.**

Answer

__we should not assign equal probabilities to all the 6 six outcomes when die is tossed because in this case the 1 and 2 have less chances of occurrences than 3 , 4 ,5 and 6.__

as the sides with 3, 4, 5, and 6 are more likly to occur than sides 1 and 2.

as the sides with 3, 4, 5, and 6 are more likly to occur than sides 1 and 2.

**b. Next consider this die with 10 sides numbered 1 through 10. Determine whether you should assign equal probabilities to all 10 outcomes when this die is tossed. Explain why.**

we can assign equal probabilites to the outcomes if all the sides are equal and have same chances of occurrences.
