    probability

    During basketball games in the past, Michael has had the following results when shooting free throws after having been fouled attempting a two point shot: 30%, 30%, and 40% of the time he will get 0, 1, or 2 points respectively. Use the following set of random digits to simulate 100 free throws.
    Use the digits 0 - 3, 4 - 6, and 7 - 9 to simulate Michael's results. Estimate the probability that during a given game, Michael will score 1 point the next time he is fouled.
    18728 94741 32063 04963
    15592 71357 28152 11732
    89555 75520 08882 95295
    38894 58070 77371 10194
    64336 95103 90740 03577

    If digits 4, 5, and 6 represent scoring one point
    If digits 7, 8, and 9 represent scoring one point
    Digits 0, 1, 2, and 3

    25 percent
    33 percent
    cannot represent scoring one point
