A spinner and 6 cards are shown below: A spinner with 3 equal sectors is shown in the figure. The colors Green, Blue, and Red are marked on it. The arrow points at the green color. Six cards are shown on the right side. The colors Purple, Green, Red, Yellow, Blue, and Pink are marked on them. Jordan spins the spinner and picks up a card without looking. What is the probability that the spinner stops at green and a yellow card is selected? Answers are 1/36 , 1/18 , 1/6 1/3 I think its one 1/6?
