Each of the squares is equally likely. but he triangle probability differs from the square. The probability of getting a square is 0.72. Give the probability for the 14 outcomes.

    prob square = .72
    then prob of triangle is 1-.72 = .28

    prob(each of the particular squares) = .72/6 = .12
    prob(each of the particular triangles = .28/8 = .035

    note 8(.035) + 6(312) = 1
