    A spinner has 4 equal sectors colored yellow, blue, green and red. After spinning the spinner, what is the probability of landing on each color?

    Why is it 1/4 though?

    As there are four colours, the chance of landing on a particular colour would be 1/4 or 0.25

    If all options are equally likely, the answer is usually 1/the number of possible options
