A game consists of spinning an arrow which comes to rest pointing at one of the regions (1, 2 or 3) (Fig.). Are the outcomes 1, 2 and 3 equally likely to occur? Give reasons
Solution. Probability: probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one.
Here 3 contain 50% of the region and 1, 2, contain 25%, 15% of the region.
All probabilities are not equal. So the given statement is false.
