As a 4-H project, Billy is raising chickens. He feeds and waters them every day, and collects the eggs every other day, selling them to people in the neighborhood. He has found that each hen's nest will contain from 0 to 2 eggs. Based on past experience he estimates that there will be no eggs in 10% of the nests, one egg in 30% of the nests, and 2 eggs in the other 60%. Conduct a simulation to estimate how many nests Bill will have to visit to collect a dozen eggs.

Describe how you will use a random number table to conduct this simulation.

Look at one digit at a time. Let 0 = no eggs; 1, 2, 3 = one egg; 4 - 9 = two eggs. Go across the row of digits one at a time, adding up the number of eggs until there are 12 or more. Repeated digits are allowed.
Count the number of nests visited. Repeat three times and report the average number of nests.
