Probability Calculator - Experiment function

Hello everybody, it’s me again.

I am working on the final assignment and I am a bit stuck on the experiment function. Here’s what the description says

Each experiment consists of starting with a hat containing the specified balls, drawing several balls, and checking if you got the balls you were attempting to draw.

So, each experiments should run a N number of times. I should draw balls from the Hat and compare the result with what I expected. Everytime I get the expected I should add it until the numbers of experiments are complete. Here’s how my code for this part looks:

def experiment (Hat,num_balls_drawn,num_experiments,expected_balls):

    for trials in range(num_experiments):
        draws = Hat.draw(num_balls=num_balls_drawn)
        draws_dict = dict_of_balls(draws)
        total_trials = 0
        probability_result = 0
        for keys in draws_dict:
            if expected_balls.keys():
            return probability_result

It’s still incomplete, my question is:

How do I compare the draws with what is expected? I was thinking that it would make more sense to compare them as dictionaries, because I could compare if the key was in there but also that the number as well.

This is my code so far:

import copy
import random as rd

def list_of_balls(hat_dict):
    'Turns a dictionary into a list, repeating the keys times value'
    for keys in hat_dict:
        balls_list = []
        num_balls = hat_dict[keys]
        colour_name = keys
        for balls in range(num_balls):
            balls_list.append(colour_name)

def dict_of_balls(list):
    'Turns a list into a dictionary, keys are the elements and values are the times they are repeated in the list'
    final_dict = {}
    for balls in list:
        ball_number = list.count(balls)
        final_dict.update({balls:ball_number})
    return final_dict    

class Hat:
    def __init__(self, hats={}):
        
        self.hats = dict(hats)
        # self.content = list(self.hats.keys())    
        self.content = []   
        self.total_number_balls = sum(self.hats.values())
        self.list_keys = list(self.hats.keys())
        for keys in self.hats:
            num_balls = self.hats[keys]
            colour_name = keys
            for balls in range(num_balls):
                self.content.append(colour_name) 
         
    
    def draw (self,num_balls):
#_______Remove balls at random from the hat
        # random_ball = rd.choice(content_copy)
        Total_quantity = self.total_number_balls
        content_copy = self.content.copy()
        content_copy_length = len(content_copy)
        random_balls_list = []

        for draws in range(num_balls):            
            if num_balls > content_copy_length:
                return 'Balls returned'
            # content_copy.pop(random_ball)
            random_balls_list.append(rd.choice(content_copy))
        
        return random_balls_list

def experiment (Hat,num_balls_drawn,num_experiments,expected_balls):

    for trials in range(num_experiments):
        draws = Hat.draw(num_balls=num_balls_drawn)
        draws_dict = dict_of_balls(draws)
        total_trials = 0
        probability_result = 0
        for keys in draws_dict:
            if expected_balls.keys():     
            return probability_result

This is the solution I came up with:

def experiment (Hat,num_balls_drawn,num_experiments,expected_balls):

    for trials in range(num_experiments):
        draws = Hat.draw(num_balls=num_balls_drawn)
        draws_dict = dict_of_balls(draws)
        total_trials = 0
        probability_result = 0
        for keys in expected_balls:
            expected_value = expected_balls.get(keys)
            draw_value = draws.count(keys) 
            if (keys in draws) and (expected_value <= draw_value):
                
                total_trials +=1
        probability_result = total_trials / num_experiments
        return probability_result
