To solve this problem, do this...

 

Multiply the probabilities of the outcomes. 4/10*6/10 = 24/100 = 12/50 = 6/25.

 

The answer is 6/25.

What you can learn from this is that whenever it asks you the probability of something happening then the probability something else happening, you can find the total probability by multiplying both probabilities.

 

So if a spinner has 10 sections and 2 are blue and 8 are orange.

 

You will do 2/10 * 8/10 = 16/100 -> 4/25.
