Probabadminton

Two teams are playing a one-round badminton.

Watch the video and observe how many times
1. the player in the blue jersey hits the shuttlecock.
2. the shuttlecock is passed through his side of the court.



Done watching? Answer this question.

  1. Based on the video, what is the probability that the player hits the shuttlecock the first time?
  2. What is the probability that the player hits the shuttlecock in the whole round of game?
  3. If the player hits the shuttlecock every time it is passed, calculate the probability that he hits it after 14 passes.
Something to ponder...

Do you think the player will achieve the same probability if he plays in another round? why?
