# Bottle Cap Experiments

Suppose you drop a plastic bottle cap 30 times.

- Predict how many times it will land open side up, open side down, or on its side. Record your guesses in the Bottle Caps interactive table.
Drop a bottle cap 30 times and record your results.

How do your results compare to your predictions?

- Use your results from the 30 trials to calculate the experimental probability of each outcome.
- Based on these probabilities, predict the results for each outcome if you were to conduct 900 trials.

Your teacher will share the class results for the 30 trials.

- Calculate the experimental probability of each outcome based on the class results.
