Determining Probabilities

If a spinner has 10 equal-sized sections, which of the following will be false?

P(1) = 10%

P(not 1) = 10%

P(2) = 10%

P(not odd) = 50%

1. same question as the last one really.
Come on guess and say why you guessed that.

2. obviously it is P(not 1) = 10% because that implies that 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 have 10% chance against 1. so each number that is not 1 will have less than 1% of a chance to beat 1.

3. or just nine out of ten of your slots are not one so the chances of hitting any one of them is certainly not 0.1

4. I just broke it down for Jamar because this is a rather simple question, so I didn't know if he needed extra help on this or if he was just being lazy and not doing his homework.
