Q:

You play a game that involves spinning the money wheel shown. you spin the wheel twice find the probability that you get more than $500 on your first spin and then go bankrupt on your second spin. round your answer to the nearest tenth

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Probability that you get more than $500 on your first spin and then go bankrupt on your second spin is:0.02Step-by-step explanation:There are 24 segments on the wheel in total. 6 segment are of more than $500 and 2 are the bankruptcy spaces. P(more than $500 on first spin and bankrupt on second spin)=P(more than $500 on first spin)Γ—P(bankrupt on second)=[tex]\dfrac{6}{24}\times \dfrac{2}{24}\\ \\=\dfrac{1}{4}\times \dfrac{1}{12}\\ \\=\dfrac{1}{48} \\\\=0.02[/tex]Hence, probability that you get more than $500 on your first spin and then go bankrupt on your second spin is:0.02
