Megan tells her friends that if she spins the arrow shown, it is a fact that the arrow will land on the purple section. Is she right? No, because the arrow will land on a green section 50% of the time and a purple section 50% of the time. Yes, because it is a fact that the arrow will land on the largest area, which is the purple section. No, because although it is probable the arrow will land in the purple section, it is not fact. Yes, because probability is fact, the arrow will land on the purple section.

    Paul is playing a game at the school carnival. He rolls two fair-numbered cubes numbered from 1 to 6. Paul wins a prize if both cubes land on the number 3. What is the probability Paul will win a prize? 1/36 1/6 1/4 1/12

    That ones a little tricky but I think it would be 1/6 Because 2/12 would reduce to 1/6
