Data from Pearson (1900) about the frequency of 5s and 6s in throws of 12 dice. Weldon tossed the dice 26,306 times and reported his results in a letter to Francis Galton on 1894-02-02.
A 1-way table giving the frequency of a 5 or a 6 in 26,306 throws of 12 dice where 10 indicates ‘10 or more’ 5s or 6s. The variable and its levels are
