A supermarket is running a promotion. For every $20 you spend, you will receive one domino. There are 50 dominoes to collect. I received 10 dominoes for my last shop and was surprised to find that all 10 dominoes were different. Should I have been surprised? Explain 🙂

Anna teaches introductory-level statistics at the University of Auckland. She enjoys facilitating workshops to support professional development of statistics teachers and thinks teaching statistics (and mathematics) is awesome. Anna is also undertaking a PhD in statistics and data science education.
