  1. It is bad enough when Myriah has to do the dishes. But Myriah really dislikes doing the dishes several days in a row! Myriah and her mom have agreed to roll two dice. When the sum of the dice is 6 or less, Myriah has to do the dishes. If the sum is 7 or more, one of her parents does the dishes. Myriah wants to know how many times in the next two months she will end up doing the dishes three or more days in a row. Homework Help ✎

    1. Run a simulation of rolling the two dice and record the sum of each roll to simulate the 60 days (two months).

    2. How often during two months can Myriah expect to have to do the dishes three or more days in a row?

See problem 6-16.

Answers will vary, but should be ≈ 7 to 8 days.
