1. what is the probability of landing on A?
2. what is the probability of landing on B?
3. what is the probability of landing on C?
then, multiply all of these probabilities together to find the probability of landing on A, B, and C

I'm not going to just give you the answer, please try to do what I asked you to do

- Vocaloid

- is3535

i think its A

- Vocaloid

no, please try to do what I asked you to do

- anonymous

I think it would be 1/16

- Vocaloid

please stop trying to guess, I want you to use math to solve the problem

- Vocaloid

let's break it down step by step:
1. What is the probability of landing on A?

- is3535

IT 3/4 IT FALID ON B SO THAT WAS I THINK IT 3/4

- Vocaloid

No, please try again:
How many sections of the spinner are there?

- is3535

4

- Vocaloid

Great! How many sections have A on them?

- is3535

1

- Vocaloid

Great! What is the probability of landing on A, then?

- is3535

3 or 1

- is3535

1

1

- Vocaloid

No, please try again.
Probability of landing on A = number of sections with A/total number of sections
What is the probability of landing on A?

- is3535

1

- Vocaloid

No, please try again:
Probability of landing on A = number of sections with A/total number of sections
number of sections with A = 1
total number of sections = 4

- is3535

1/4

- Vocaloid

YES, it's 1/4! But we're not done yet!

- Vocaloid

Now, what is the probability of landing on B?

- is3535

2/4

- Vocaloid

No, please try again.
How many sections have B on them?

- is3535

1/4

- Vocaloid

Yup! Now, what is the probability of landing on C?

- is3535

1/4

- is3535

AND D 1/4

- Vocaloid

Fantastic!
Now, multiply these three probabilities together:
1. probability of landing on A
2. probability of landing on B
3. probability of landing on C

- is3535

can you setup for me

- Vocaloid

(probability of landing on A)*(probability of landing on B)*(probability of landing on C)
you already found these three numbers, just multiply them together

- is3535

A

- is3535

64

- Vocaloid

no, please check your math again.
probability of landing on A = 1/4
probability of landing on B = 1/4
probability of landing on C = 1/4

- is3535

4 X 4 X 4=64

- is3535

64 X 4 = 256

- Vocaloid

no, please check your math again.
please multiply these three numbers together
probability of landing on A = 1/4
probability of landing on B = 1/4
probability of landing on C = 1/4

- is3535

YEA 1 X 1 X 1=1 SO 4 X 4 X 4 X = 1/64 OR 1/256

- Vocaloid

the answer is 1/64, not 1/256

- Vocaloid

1/64 is not the same thing as 64

OK TY VERY MUCH OK LIFESAVER TY
