1. A tesserae is a year supply of grain and oil given to your family when you submit your name into the reaping. It heightens the chance of being chosen when you submit your name, lowering the chance of people whose name went in only once. 2. It was good because she put her name in 20 times. The other people put in their names at least twice, so Katniss has a higher theoretical probability of being selected. 3. 16
4. The odds are the chance of one of them surviving the games (23/24). Its’ related to probability because the probability of someone winning is 1/24, assuming there can be only one winner. 5. 1, 2, or 4 have the most produced of winning tributes. The probability of those districts winning the game is 3 out of 12. 6. Career Tributes are tributes who have been trained their whole life in case they were chosen for the games. 7. They train so they can have a better chance of winning. The factors of causing them to win are training. 8. 13/24. 12/24. 12/12.
9. Theoretically a tribute winning from the districts is higher because they’re wealthier and have been trained for the games. Experimentally, most careers die because they turn on each other. 10. The higher the number of the district, the poverty increases. Lower district numbers like 1, 3, and 4 have a low poverty rate, increasing their chance at having a victor. 11. For every district there are 2 boys and girls. During the Quarter Quell the districts double up, equaling 48. From district 12 is 0.8 and 0.8 because soon all the tributes will die. 12. The theoretical probability of the 74th Hunger Games ending in the way that it did is 1/74. 13. The Standard Deviation is 9.36830156. Without the outlier the Standard Deviation becomes 4.2604595. The outlier spreads the information out.
