The expected value is 20 times.

The expected number is 3750.

The probability of drawing the Ace of Spades from a standard deck of 52 cards is 1 in 52, or about 0.01923. However, the number of times you can expect to draw it depends on random statistics. If you tested this a large number of times, shuffling the deck each time, you would expect about 1 out of every 52 trials to be the Ace of Spades, but that would only be in the long run, say for thousands and thousands of trials, and even then, it would not be exact. This is the difference between theoretical probability and experimental probability. Theoretical probability is based on pure statistics and the arrangement of the test. All you can say is that, for an infinite number of trials, you would expect 1 out of 52. In the case of experimental probability, you are limited by the number of trials that you can perform. Lets say you ran 10,000 trials. Theoretically, you would expect to draw the Ace of Spades about 192 times. In practice, you would have a range of results.

The answer depends on the number of sides on the spinner and how they are numbered.

The expected value is 20 times.

40 times

The expected number is 3750.

The expected number of times is the probability x number of throws. Since you have a prob of 1/6 for a seven, then (1/6) * 160 = 26.67 times you would have success. We generally would round up the expected number of successes to the whole number 27.
