Al and Byron are each spinning a spinner. The spinner is split into 10 even sections with 2 sections being black, 4 being blue, 1 being white, 2 being red and 1 being gold. If the spinner lands on black or red, Al gets a point. If the spinner lands on blue, white or gold, Byron gets a point. Otherwise, no point is awarded. Is the above game fair?

 

Thank you for helping!

Probability  that  Al   gets a point  =  ( 2 + 2)  / 10  =   4/10

 

Ptobability  that  Byron gets a point =  ( 4 + 1 + + 1)  / 10  =  6/10

 

For the game  to be fair, each  would have to have  the  same probabilty of getting a point....so....it is not fair
