Hopefully this is helpful (and correct!)

Sounds like you are interested in # of absences that fall on Monday, where you have n=11 absences, and P[Monday absence | absence] = 1/3

They tell you to do 5 trials. Now, each trial should have 11 "coin flips". Specifically, our coin doesn't result in heads/tails; our coin will tell us Monday/Not Monday.

You can use random.org/integers to generate 11 random numbers from 1 thru 3. A '1' would simulate a Monday absence. Count the number of '1's (aka Mondays) you get.
