Imagine you are given 6 non-conforming plastic parts from an 8-cavity mold and 3 of them have the same cavity ID. Is it more likely to be a clue or a coincidence? Hard to tell with only one event. Next, how many parts would you have to look at to make sure you have a complete cavity set? Probably more than you imagine. This application lets you duplicate such events as many times as you wish, enabling you to develop a feel for the odds. It can also be used to simulate coin flips, dice rolls and many other random events. The results are shown below in the form of a histogram. Each row represents one outcome and the number of times it occurred.
