Copy the diagram below which shows all the possible outcomes nd throw st throw On your diagram, show outcomes which have the same number on both throws, a total score of 8.. When this spinner is used, the scores 1, 2,, 4 and 5 are equally likely. For one spin, (i) what is the probability of scoring a 2, (ii) what is the probability of not scoring a 2? When playing a game the spinner is spun twice and the scores are added to give a total. Write down all the different ways of getting a total of The diagram shows a spinner, labelled A. The result shown is Blue. Spinner A is a fair spinner. What is the probability of not getting Green with spinner A? Green Red Blue A The diagram shows another spinner, labelled B. The result shown is. Spinner B is weighted (biased). 1 2 B 60
