A spinner has 8 equally sized sections labelled as A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H. In 160 spins, how many times can you expect to spin on a consonant?

1 answer

  1. Out of the 8 sections, A, E, and I are vowels. This leaves us with 5 consonants: B, C, D, F, and G.

    The probability of spinning a consonant on any given spin is therefore 5/8. To find the expected number of times we will spin a consonant in 160 spins, we simply multiply the probability of spinning a consonant by the number of spins:

    Expected number of spins on a consonant = (5/8) x 160 = 100

    Therefore, we can expect to spin a consonant 100 times in 160 spins.
