what the main problem says is a number cube is rolled and a spinner is spun

- anonymous

and the problem is it say three or consonant

- anonymous

so that means we have to do one sixth times something

- anonymous

im sorry i dont understand what the question is asking u to find. sorry.

- anonymous

its in a book you probably wouldnt get it

- anonymous

ok there are five spots on a spinner

- anonymous

and a cube is rolled, the cube has six sides so thats where you get one sixth from

- anonymous

and it say three or consonant

- anonymous

no it says three and a consonant

- anonymous

so is it the addition of the two?

- anonymous

actually your multiplying

- anonymous

its one sixth times something

- anonymous

haha no i mean like if you add the sum of what you spin and what you roll

- anonymous

and the problem say three and a consonant

- anonymous

like the probability of a three and a constant?

- anonymous

whats a consonant

- 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

so thats all it is is a number being rolled on a dice over and over

- anonymous

yeah or spun

- anonymous

so if thats what the question is asking, then you just multiply probability
1/6 * 1/5

- anonymous

these are letters though so we might say letters being spun over and over

- anonymous

BUT

- 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

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

but we looked in the back of the book and the answer is one over ten

- anonymous

ok let me see. can you just type the entire problem?

- anonymous

1/6 x 3/5

- anonymous

yeah that would be 1/10

- anonymous

and then i have to simplify that

- anonymous

and im guessing that would turn that into 1/10

- anonymous

yeah it would. its 1x3/(6x5) = 3/30 = 3/(3x10) = 1/10

- anonymous

do you see how it happened? it was by factoring out the three from the denominator and numerator

- anonymous

yeah

- anonymous

my brother wasnt explaning all the way

- anonymous

haha thats ok i was confused anyway

- anonymous

yep

- anonymous

now im really confused

- anonymous

it says factor of 6 and D

- anonymous

ok so whats the things on the spinner?

- anonymous

A-E

- 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

and since they are a-e you want a d, the probability is 1/5
so multiply 2/3 * 1/5

- anonymous

hint: you can't simplify

- anonymous

I Got a question how did you get 1/5

- 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
