TLF ID L3662
Test a machine that randomly packages two types of fruit jubes: kookaburra and kiwi. Notice that each jube type is equally likely to be produced within a packet of 12 jubes. Look at patterns in sequences of jube types such as kookaburra, kiwi, kookaburra, kiwi (run of 4). Manually choose jube types for a new packet. Explore the longest run of alternating jube types. Compare the results from larger random samples. Identify whether the longest run in your packet is similar to the longest run most likely to occur in a randomly produced packet. This learning object is one in a series of 17 objects.
