Which outcome is least likely when spinning the arrow on this spinner?
00:00:09.070 --> 00:00:12.460
First, letβs see how many different outcomes there are.
00:00:14.300 --> 00:00:19.520
In this case, weβll need to see how many different letters the arrow could fall on.
00:00:20.920 --> 00:00:28.380
It could fall on π, π, π
, or π.
00:00:30.700 --> 00:00:42.500
To answer the question about likelihood though, we need to count how many chances you have that your arrow will fall on π, π, π
, or π.
00:00:44.420 --> 00:00:48.180
There are five πβs on our spinner.
00:00:48.470 --> 00:00:53.040
That means that there are five chances that the arrow will land on π.
00:00:54.820 --> 00:00:58.710
At the same time, there is only one π on the spinner.
00:00:59.120 --> 00:01:08.320
Only one chance it will land on the π, two πβs, and two π
βs.
00:01:10.710 --> 00:01:17.410
Our question is which outcome is least likely β the smallest chance.
00:01:19.310 --> 00:01:30.670
Because thereβs only one π on our spinner and there are two π
βs, two πβs, and five πβs, it is least likely that the arrow will land on π.
