**A game of chance consists of spinning an arrow which comes to rest pointing at one of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (see Figure), and these are equally likely outcomes. What is the probability that it will point at** **a number less than 9?**

Answer:

Total number of possible outcomes = 8

P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes)

Total numbers less than 9 = 8 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8)

P (pointing at a number less than 9) = 8/8 = 1
