Ross has a spinner that is split into eight equal sections numbered 1 through 8. He spun the spinner 1,112 times. Which of the following would be a good estimate of the number of times the spinner landed on number 6?

The probability of landing on any number = (1/ 8)....so.....the number of  times the spinner [theoretically] lands on a "6"  =

 

1112 * (1/8 )  =  139 times

 

cool cool cool

I kept getting 139 also but that was apparantly wrong.
