# a box contains 10000 tickets

## Explain how to find the answers to these Statistics- The Law Of Averages questions?

1. A box contains 10000 tickets: 4000 0’s and 6000 1’s. 10000 draws will be made at random with replacement from the box. Which of the following best describes the situation and why?

a.) The number of 1’s will be 6000 exactly

b.) The number of 1’s is very likely to equal 6000 but there is also some chance that it will no be equal to 6000

c.) The number of 1’s is likely to be different from 6000 but the difference is likely to be small compared to 10000

2. Repeat exercise 1 for 10000 draws made at random without replacement from the box.
