Hi Matt :3
geometric probability
the probability of an event is based on a
ratio of geometric measures, such as
length or area
A point is chosen
randomly on line
segment WZ. Find the
geometric probability
for each situation.
1) The point is on XZ
2) The point is not on XY
1) The pointer landing on
orange or yellow
Use the spinner to find the
probability of each event.
2) The pointer not landing
on green
Find the probability that a point
chosen randomly in the
