At the Spring Field day students are given one chance to spin a spinner and win a prize. The spinner has 4 equal sections. One of the sections has a color on it, and the other three sections have a number on them. To win, the spinner must stop on a section with a number. If 20 students play a game, how many should be expected to win?
