If the spinner above is spun 120 times, predict the number of times the spinner would land on Section D.
A. The spinner would land on Section D roughly 12 times, but probably not exactly 12 times.
B. The spinner would land on Section D roughly 15 times.
C. The spinner would land on Section D roughly 30 times, but probably not exactly 30 times.
D. The spinner would land on Section D exactly 30 times.
120 x .25 = 30
But will it be exactly 30 times???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Theatrically, It would land on it exactly 30 times. It's like flipping a coin, 50% and 50%. With the spinner it's 25%, 25%, 25%, 25%. In real life, No. This is accurate but on this sheet, It's not on realism probably. The answer is Exactly 30 times, cause 25% of 120 is 30.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's what I was thinking. It can't always land exactly into 1/4 every time but according to the math, like you said. Anyways, thanks for your help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Looking at a "teachers" sheet of this problem <Or similar>. It was roughly. Cause it was on realism on that one. But not exactly positive!
