a spinner has 5 sections and is spun 40 times. it lands on 2 six times. What is probability of spinning a 2?

• probability -

There are 5x40 or 200 sections that could have come up
the 2 came up 6 times
prob (of 2) = 6/200 = 3/100

• probability -

There were 40 outcomes, of which 6 were spinning a 2.
Experimental probability = 6/40 = 3/20.

• probability -

6/200=3/100
