what the main problem says is a number cube is rolled and a spinner is spun
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the problem is it say three or consonant
anonymous
  • anonymous
so that means we have to do one sixth times something
anonymous
  • anonymous
im sorry i dont understand what the question is asking u to find. sorry.
anonymous
  • anonymous
its in a book you probably wouldnt get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok there are five spots on a spinner
anonymous
  • anonymous
and a cube is rolled, the cube has six sides so thats where you get one sixth from
anonymous
  • anonymous
and it say three or consonant
anonymous
  • anonymous
no it says three and a consonant
anonymous
  • anonymous
so is it the addition of the two?
anonymous
  • anonymous
actually your multiplying
anonymous
  • anonymous
its one sixth times something
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha no i mean like if you add the sum of what you spin and what you roll
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the problem say three and a consonant
anonymous
  • anonymous
like the probability of a three and a constant?
anonymous
  • anonymous
whats a consonant
anonymous
  • anonymous
a constant is just a number. in this case, from what i assume from what you tell me, it would be just a number spun or rolled and you keep getting it. like roll the cube, get a 4. roll it again, get a 4. over and over...
anonymous
  • anonymous
so thats all it is is a number being rolled on a dice over and over
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah or spun
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if thats what the question is asking, then you just multiply probability 1/6 * 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
these are letters though so we might say letters being spun over and over
anonymous
  • anonymous
BUT
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok so for multiple times you have 1/6 * 1/5 and then you add the same probability for the roll for however many times
anonymous
  • anonymous
like you want to roll a three a number every time for three times...the probability would be 1/6 * 1/5 + 1/6 * 1/5 + 1/6 * 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
but we looked in the back of the book and the answer is one over ten
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok let me see. can you just type the entire problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/6 x 3/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah that would be 1/10
anonymous
  • anonymous
and then i have to simplify that
anonymous
  • anonymous
and im guessing that would turn that into 1/10
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah it would. its 1x3/(6x5) = 3/30 = 3/(3x10) = 1/10
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you see how it happened? it was by factoring out the three from the denominator and numerator
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
my brother wasnt explaning all the way
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha thats ok i was confused anyway
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
now im really confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
it says factor of 6 and D
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so whats the things on the spinner?
anonymous
  • anonymous
A-E
anonymous
  • anonymous
a factor of 6 means numbers that can multiply to get 6. if the numbers on the cube are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 then the factors are 1, 2, 3, and 6 so for the probability of a factor of six would be 4/6 or 2/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
and since they are a-e you want a d, the probability is 1/5 so multiply 2/3 * 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
hint: you can't simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
I Got a question how did you get 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
because the spinner has five choices...its the same with the cube. you have six sides so the probability of getting say a 6 is 1/6 i.e. one out of six. since you spin and you have to land on one you have 1/5
