# What is the probability of spinning a 2 on a spinner?

Table of Contents

## What is the probability of spinning a 2 on a spinner?

There are 2 sections on the spinner that contain a ‘2’. The probability of spinning a 2 is 2 / 8 .

## What is the probability of spinning yellow and rolling a two?

2/8

The probability of spinning a yellow or green in a color wheel of 8 colors (assuming all the colors are different) is 2/8.

## What is the probability of spinner a multiple of 3?

Step-by-step explanation: There are 2 multiples of 3: 3 and 6. So, 6 numbers are left out of 8 numbers. Therefore, the probability is 6/8 that is, 3/4.

## How do you find the probability of two spinners?

Multiply the probabilities just calculated for each individual spinner together to find the probability of getting any specific combination of outcomes from spinning the arrows on both spinners. In the example, you would multiply 1/4 by 1/3 to obtain 1/12.

## What is the probability of spinning blue or yellow?

Problem: | A spinner has 4 equal sectors colored yellow, blue, green and red. What are the chances of landing on blue after spinning the spinner? What are the chances of landing on red? |
---|---|

Solution: | The chances of landing on blue are 1 in 4, or one fourth. |

The chances of landing on red are 1 in 4, or one fourth. |

## What is the probability of spinning even numbers?

The probability of getting an even number on spinning the wheel is 1/2 and that of a prime number is 4/6.

## What is the probability of spinning 2 and 3?

There are 8 numbers for that spinner so the probability of getting a 2 out of 8 numbers is 1/8. There are 6 sides for a die so the probability of getting a 3 out of 6 sides is 1/6. Since spinning a spinner and rolling a die are Independent, the probability of both happening is 1/8 times 1/6 which is 1/48.

## How to write the probability of a spinner?

This spinner is split into 5 equal sections. One section contains a ‘1’ and another section contains a ‘3’. 2 out of the 5 sections on the spinner contain a ‘1’ or a ‘3’. We can write the probability as 2 / 5 . Because 2 sections is less than half of the spinner, the spinner will land on a ‘1’ or a ‘3’ less than half of the time.

## Which is more likely to spin a 2 or a 3?

Spinning a 2 and spinning a 3 are equally likely on this spinner because there is the same probability of each outcome occurring. The probability of spinning a 5 is 1 / 8 . We have filled our sample space with the probabilities of spinning each outcome. We can check that our fractions all add up to 8 / 8 or one whole.

## Which is the most likely outcome of a spinner?

Anthing that occurs more than half of the time we describe as likely . The outcomes of the spinner are all fractions out of 8. We can label their positions on the probability scale by dividing the scale into eight equal parts. We can see that spinning a 1 is the most likely outcome because it has the biggest probability of occurring.

## Why does the spinner always land on a 1?

Because 2 sections is less than half of the spinner, the spinner will land on a ‘1’ or a ‘3’ less than half of the time. Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. Below is a spinner. The arrow is spun and the number that it lands on is the score that we receive. This number is called the outcome .
