Calculating the Probability of a Wheel Spun

A wheel with the following probabilities is spun:

Prob(1)= 0.50, Prob (2) = 0.20, Prob (3) = 0.30

If the wheel is spun 3 times find probability that the sum of numbers you get = 6

Solution Preview

The wheel is spun 3 times and the total number is 6. So we have two cases.
<br>Case 1: Every time you get 2, then ...

Solution Summary

The solution finds the probability when a wheel with the following probabilities is spun. Prob(1)= 0.50, Prob (2) = 0.20, Prob (3) = 0.30
