# If You Have a Spinning Wheel with 3 Green Sectors, 1 Blue Sector and 1 Red Sector, What is the Probability of Getting a Green Sector? What is the Probability of Getting a Non Blue Sector? - Mathematics

If you have a spinning wheel with 3 green sectors, 1 blue sector and 1 red sector, what is the probability of getting a green sector? What is the probability of getting a non blue sector?

#### Solution

Total sectors = 3 + 1 + 1 = 5

There are 5 sectors and we can get a green sector in three cases.

Probability of getting a green sector = 3/5

We will get a non blue sector when we will get either a green sector or a red sector. Hence, 4 cases of such type are possible in which we will get a non blue sector.

Probability of getting a non blue sector = 4/5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
