for a spinner numbered one to ten, all outcomes are equally likely. What is the probability of getting a factor of six?
I thought it might be 4/10 or 2/5 because i think a factor is a number that can go into another one. I often confuse those with multiples so if someone knows for sure, that would be great, THANKS.

If the number 1 is considered to be a factor, then you are correct,
the factors of 6 would be 1,2,3, and 6 ,
four of them.
