Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Probability 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).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00  10 doesn't solve the problem though; that's 11 numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would say 5/10 because I think they meant for it to be 110 which would then be 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which then you divide 4 by 10 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 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.
