There are two spinners. Each spinner is numbered 1-4. Each spinner is spun once. Find the probability of spinning each of the following:2 on the first spinner and a 4 on the second spinner, both numbers the same, 3 on exactly one spinner, one number less than the other.

prob(2 on 1st, 4 on 2nd) = (1/4)(1/4) = 1/16

prob(both a 3) = (1/4)(1/4) = 1/16

third question: 3 on one, one less on the other ???

do you mean (3,2) and (2,3)

if so , then prob = 1/16 + 1/16 = 1/8
