b. Use your data to calculate an experimental probability for each color. Write each probability in probability notation. Express each probability as a ratio and a percent
P(Blue) =
P(Green) =
P(Yellow) =

The experimental probability of an event E is $P\left(E\right)=\frac{\text{number of successful trials}}{\text{total number of trials}}$ From the table, the total number of trials is $30+14+6=50$.
Since 30 trials were blue, then P(Blue) =$\frac{30}{50}=\frac{3}{5}$ as a ratio. Since $\frac{30}{50}=\frac{60}{100}=60\mathrm{%}$, then P(Blue) $=60\mathrm{%}$ as a percent.
Since 14 trials were green, then P(Green) =$\frac{14}{50}=\frac{7}{25}$ as a ratio. Since $\frac{14}{50}=\frac{28}{100}=28\mathrm{%}$, then P(Green) $=28\mathrm{%}$ as a percent.
Since 6 trials were yellow, then P(Yellow) =$\frac{6}{50}=\frac{3}{25}$ as a ratio. Since $\frac{6}{50}=\frac{12}{100}=12\mathrm{%}$, then P(Yellow) =12% as a percent.
