Solution

## The total number of trials is 30. Remember the empirical or experimental or observed frequency approach to probability. If n be the total number of trials of an experiment and A is an event associated to it such that A happens in m-trials. Then the empirical probability of happening of event A is denoted byand is given by (i) Let A be the event of hitting boundary. The number of times A happens is 6. Therefore, we have (ii) Let B be the event of does not hitting boundary. The number of times B happens is. Therefore, we have
