On January 1 of every year, many people watch the Rose Parade on television. The week before the parade is very busy for float builders and decorators. Roses, carnations, and other flowers are purchased from around the world to decorate the floats. Based on past experience, one float decorator found that 10% of the bundles of roses delivered will not open in time for the parade, 20% of the bundles of roses delivered will have bugs on them and be unusable, 60% of the bundles of roses will turn out to be beautiful, and the rest of the bundles of roses delivered will bloom too early and start to discolor before January 1. Conduct a simulation to estimate how many roses the float decorator will need to purchase to have 15 good bundles of roses to place on the float.

State your conclusion.

It required 22 bundles in Trial 1, 32 bundles in trial 2, and 32 bundles in trial 3 to obtain 15 bundles of beautiful roses for the float. The estimate of the number of bundles needed is the average, or 28.7 bundles.
According to this simulation, the float decorator will need to purchase at least 32 bundles of roses to be sure of obtaining 15 bundles of beautiful roses for the float.
