Construct a spinner with red, yellow, blue, and
green sectors, so the following probabilities are true.
• The probability of landing on red is .
• The probability of landing on yellow is 50%.
• The probability of landing on blue is 1:10.
• The probability of landing on green is .
Explain how you drew your spinner.

It's obvious you do since if you are using plain text it wouldn't be empty behind green and red.

Your question reads

 

Construct a spinner with red, yellow, blue, and
green sectors, so the following probabilities are true.
• The probability of landing on red is .
• The probability of landing on yellow is 50%.
• The probability of landing on blue is 1:10.
• The probability of landing on green is .
Explain how you drew your spinner.

 

If you read closely it is empty after "red is" and "green is"

 

I'd like you to provide these values in order for me to help you.

 

Thanks.

 Construct a spinner with red, yellow, blue, and
green sectors, so the following probabilities are true.

• The probability of landing on red is 1/5
• The probability of landing on yellow is 50%.
• The probability of landing on blue is 1:10.
• The probability of landing on green is 2/10

Explain how you drew your spinner.

Thank you parpar appreciate it.

 

GUEST: if this question isn't correct you can base it off my pie chart or do something else.

Guest here is the image.

 

 

I am reasonably sure I did not mix any numbers up.

 

This is from a chart, where I entered numbers as percentages.

This is a pie chart thing so each section accounts for __% of the total circle, or __% of the "pie"

 

Happy pie eating!

 

If you don't understand anything feel free to ask!

So a pie chart works like this

 

Say we have 4 things

 

We have 100 fruit

 

25 bananas, 25 apples, 10 mangoes, 40 oranges, ok?

 

What you do is you take each type, see the percentage of the whole, and put it in. Eg. 25 is 25% since25/100 = 1/4 = 25%. Thus the bananas section would take up a quarter or 25% of the circle.

 

Message me if you still don't understand and I'll do my best to explain.

Ahh yes

For degrees you do (degrees)/360 and this also works for radians.

Well the question asks for a spinner and they are usually round so a pie chart makes sense.
