## Calculating Event Probability

1.
What is the probability that the spinner will land on blue? 1. $P(blue) = 1/2$
2. $P(blue) = 1/3$
3. $P(blue) = 1/4$
4. $P(blue) = 1/6$

2.
What is the probability that the spinner will land on red or yellow? 1. $P(R or Y) = 1/2$
2. $P(R or Y) = 1/3$
3. $P(R or Y) = 2/3$
4. $P(R or Y) = 3/4$
3.
What is the probability that the spinner will land on a vowel? 1. $P(vowel) = 2/5$
2. $P(vowel) = 3/5$
3. $P(vowel) = 4/5$
4. $P(vowel) = 5/5$

4.
What is the probability that the spinner will land on 1 or 4? 1. $P(1 or 4) = 1/2$
2. $P(1 or 4) = 1/3$
3. $P(1 or 4) = 1/4$
4. $P(1 or 4) = 1/6$
5.
Kali rolls a six-sided number cube. What is the probability that the cube will land on a number less than 5? 1. $P(<5) = 1/4$
2. $P(<5) = 1/5$
3. $P(<5) = 2/3$
4. $P(<5) = 5/6$

6.
What is the probability that a six-sided number cube will land on an odd number? 1. $P(odd) = 1/2$
2. $P(odd) = 1/3$
3. $P(odd) = 1/6$
4. $P(odd) = 5/6$
7.
