A spinner has 8 equal sectors with different letters for each sector, as shown below:
A spinner with 8 equal sectors is shown. The sectors are labeled B, Y, G, P, O, V, M, and R.
Hamlet spins the spinner 13 times, and it stops at the letter R 9 times. If he spins the spinner a 14th time, what is the theoretical probability that this time it will stop at the letter R?
1 over 14
1 over 13
1 over 9
1 over 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All the spins are independent events. So, previous results have no effect on the next spin. So the probability is the same as getting R on one spin.
