if in a spinner of 18
if the probability of even numbers is 4/8 and probability of multiple of 3 is 2/8. isn't the answer 6/8/

multiple of 3 are 3,6
so the probability is 2/8 
i know but the question is to find the probability of even number from 18 which is 4/8 and multiples of 3 from 18 which is 2/8. so if you add them isn't the answer 6/8

Don't blame saiko, you didn't even ask the correct question originally
so you want the prob( the number is even And multiples of 3)
the evens are 2 4 6 8
multiples of 3 are 3 6
so the only number which is even and is a multiple of 3 is the number 6
so the prob(of your event) = 1/8
if your sentence would contain the word OR, then there would be 5 numbers, and the
prob = 5/8
What is the actual question? 
The real answer is 69
