The number on the die and the suit of the card were recorded in a bar graph (1C means rolling a one and drawing a club).

C = clubs

D = diamonds

H = hearts

S = spades

How does the experimental probability of rolling a 1 compare to the theoretical probability of rolling a 1?

The experimental probability is higher.

The theoretical probability is higher.

Both probabilities are the same.

There is no such thing as experimental probability.

It is impossible to compare the two probabilities.
