    Your question says that the spinner is divided into four equal parts.
    Then you say "My spinner has 3 parts"

    So which is it ?

    my question said my spinner has equal parts not four equal parts. it is 3.

    thank you

    You are right!

    I can't draw a tree diagram on here, but I can show the math.

    Prob(consonant on first spin)
    = 1/3

    Prob(vowel on 2nd spin)
    = 2/3

    prob(event as stated)
    = (1/3)(2/3)
    = 2/9
