You are using a spinner with the numbers 1-10 on it. Find the probability that the pointer will stop on an odd number or a number less than 4.
We want P(odd number) or P(n<4).
{1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9}
We have 6 possible pointers in a set of 10.
6/10 = 3/5 = 0.6 or 60%
We want P(odd number) or P(n<4).
- Odd numbers are {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}
- n < 4 is {1, 2, 3}
{1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9}
We have 6 possible pointers in a set of 10.
6/10 = 3/5 = 0.6 or 60%
