Simple probability
You have 20 crayons to choose from : 5 are blue, 3 are green, 8 are red and 4 are orange.
If you randomly choose one crayon, what is the probability you will get armed crayon?
P(red)= I put 8 to 20= I put 80% but my friend said 40% who's correct? Help please!!!!!!!!!!

A red crayon sorry bout that

Are you sure I just need help on the percent

You have 8/20:

8/20 = 4/10 = 2/5 = 40%

Please give me more details as to how exactly this works and if there are any costs involved. Please don't have anyone call me, just send me an email reply. Thank you. Sarah.
