    there is three ways to do this question with percent, with a number or you can say that it is likely or not.

    I don't know how to do this question but my way was that the circles are the bread choices and the lines are the meat choices.

    |dw:1433871708424:dw| @mathman101 you were on the right track As you can see...there are 24 POSSIBLE choices of a type of bread and a type of meat So if there are 24 possible choices...and only 1 choice combination will give you a turkey white sub...your probability would be \[\large P(\text{White,Turkey)}\frac{1}{24} = ?\]

    So @kiamousekia we just need to evaluate \(\large \frac{1}{24} = ?\) and change the answer to a percent by multiplying by 100

    1/24 is 4/100 so 4%?

    1/24 does indeed equal 0.0417 which in a percent is 4.17%
