I would say then 1-10 are written... let's go with that. So.. how many are greater than 5

Probability is the outcome in question divided by all the possible outcomes. How many golf balls have numbers greater than five? That's the number on top (numerator). How many golf balls are there in all? That's the number on the bottom (denominator).

4/10

its that simple

0 - 10 doesn't solve the problem though; that's 11 numbers

I would say 5/10 because I think they meant for it to be 1-10 which would then be 1/2

0-9 so sorry hard to have 2 pages up
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 4/10
anonymous
  • anonymous
which then you divide 4 by 10 right?

If you say 4/10 assuming 0 - 9 then you reduce that fraction. Probability is usually written as fractions. 2/5 so it will happen 2 out of every 5 times you do it.
