ou have been offered a great job at a very successful board game company. Your first assignment is to create spinners for a game that will be released very soon.
The first spinner must have a probability of ⅕ for each of the following options:
Lose a turn
The second spinner must have a probability of ⅙ for each of the numbers 1-6.
What is the probability that a player will lose a turn?
What is the probability that a player will move right or up more than 3 spaces?
Is a player more likely to move down or left less than 3 spaces or move up more than 1 space?
Probabiliy = Desired Outcomes/All possible outcomes
1. All possible outcomes = 5
Desired Outcomes = 1
So, the probability of losing a turn on the first spinner is 1/5
2. There is a 2/5 chance that you will either get a "Move Up" or "Move Right".
We cube 2/5 b/c we can't have use any other moves.
2/5 x 2/5 x 2/5 = 8/125
You try three yourself wih the information I have given you
I think you have to spin the 2nd spinner if you get all the options except lose a turn in the 1st spinner.
If so, the probability of getting lose a turn would 1/25/ The probability for the 2nd part of the question would be 6/25. For the 3rd part of the question, it would be 5/25.
