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?
