A spiiner was spun 16 times. The results are shown in the table below.
yellow = 5
white = 4
red = 0
blue = 2
green = 2
orange = 3
whch colors' experimental probability matches its theoretical probability
a. yellow, green and orange
b. white, red and orange
c. yellow, blue and orange
d. white, blue and green

PsyDAG,
Assuming that they all have equal areas on the spinner, by chance the experimental probability for any color on one spin is 1/6. What is 1/6 of 16?
16/6 = 2 2/3
This leads me to believe it is blue, green and orange that are closest to their theoretical probability, but that is not one of the choices. Do you have any typos?
