There are nine equally likely outcomes if you spin this spinner twice (x,y,z)

1) Three of the 9 equally likely outcomes are xx,yy and zz. List the other six outcomes.

2) If you spin the spinner three times, what is the probability of getting yyy? Explain the answer.

3) Give an example of one more event with the same probability of getting yyy? Explain the answer.

  1. 1. xy , yx, xz, zx, yz, zy

    2. with 3 spins there would be 27 cases, yyy is one of those.
    Prob = 1/27

    3. xxx or zzz
