HI!!

2. misty1212

is it $\frac{1}{8}$?

3. anonymous

yeah in the question its 1/8

4. misty1212

ok

5. misty1212

it if was "certain" then the probability would be 1, so not that one

6. misty1212

if it was "impossible" then it would be 0, so not that one either

7. misty1212

between likely and unlikely, it happens one-eighth of the time, so i guess you should go with "unlikely" as it is less than one - half
