T.P.O. (Total Possible Outcome)

T.P.O. (Total Possible Outcome)

PROCEDURE (percent):

1- divide the possible outcome by the total possible outcome (it's just like dividing the numerator by the denominator in fraction)

2- multiply by 100

for example:

1/2

1 is the possible outcome

2 is the total possible outcome

1/2= 0.5

0.5x100 is equal to 50% percent

another way or a shortcut of getting the percentage is by moving the decimal 2 places to the right

1.)

P (red)

1/5= 0.2x100

Red / T.P.O. = 20%

2.)

P (green)

1/5= 0.2x100

Green / T.P.O. = 20%

3.)

P (blue or white)

2/5= 0.4x100

Blue & White / T.P.O. = 40%

4.)

P (not yellow)

4/5= 0.8x100

Not Yellow / T.P.O. = 80%

5.)

P (not red)

4/5= 0.8x100

Not Red / T.P.O. = 80%

6.)

P(blue or red or yellow)

3/5= 0.6x100

Blue, Red, Yellow / T.P.O.= 60%

P (red)

1/5= 0.2x100

Red / T.P.O. = 20%

2.)

P (green)

1/5= 0.2x100

Green / T.P.O. = 20%

3.)

P (blue or white)

2/5= 0.4x100

Blue & White / T.P.O. = 40%

4.)

P (not yellow)

4/5= 0.8x100

Not Yellow / T.P.O. = 80%

5.)

P (not red)

4/5= 0.8x100

Not Red / T.P.O. = 80%

6.)

P(blue or red or yellow)

3/5= 0.6x100

Blue, Red, Yellow / T.P.O.= 60%

MY QUESTION: What is the probability of getting white or yellow?

ANSWER: P 2/5= 0.4x100 White or Yellow/T.P.O. = 40%

- there is 40% chance of getting white or yellow if you spin once.

ANSWER: P 2/5= 0.4x100 White or Yellow/T.P.O. = 40%

- there is 40% chance of getting white or yellow if you spin once.
