A spinner and 2 cards are shown below:
A spinner with 7 equal sectors is shown in the figure. The colors Green, Red, Orange, Violet, Pink, Yellow, and Blue are marked on it. The arrow points at the red color. Two cards are shown on the right side. The colors Purple and Green are marked on.
Sophie spins the spinner and picks up a card without looking. What is the probability that the spinner stops at red and a green card is selected?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 divided by 2 is .5 so i made it into a fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no...0.5 is 1/2 as a fraction. not 1/5. 0.2 is 1/5 as a fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in fact lets just change its wording up a bit to make it more simple. There 7 pieces of pie and each slice has a different color crust. the colors are Green, Red, Orange, Violet, Pink, Yellow, and Blue. and there are two plates. each a different color. the two colors are green and purple. without looking. sophie picks up a piece of the pie and one of te plates. What is the probability that sophie picks up a red piece of pie and a green plate?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well there are 7 equal colors, so that makes the probability of choosing one 1/7. They want to know what are chances of choosing red AND getting a green card.. and there are two cards so that's 1/2. Just multiply them and it should give you what you need \[\large \frac{1}{7} (chance~ of ~it~ landing~ on ~red) * \frac{1}{2} (chance ~of~ getting~ a ~green ~card) \]
