Question:

In a spinning wheel, there are 3 white and 5 green sectors. It is spinned. What is the probability of getting a green sector?

(a) $\frac{5}{3}$

(b) $\frac{5}{8}$

(C) $\frac{1}{5}$

(d) $\frac{3}{8}$

Solution:

(d) $\frac{3}{8}$

The wheel has a total of $5+3=8$ sectors.

Number of green sectors $=5$

Now, $\mathrm{P}_{\text {(getting a green sector) }}=\frac{5}{8}$
