P(blue)=$\frac{3}{8}$
Find the area of each region: White area=4 square units Red area=3 square units Blue area=6 square units Green area=3 square units Total area=16 square units P(events)=$\frac{numberoffavorableoutcomes}{numberofpossibleoutcomes}$ The blue is 6 square units so it is the number of favorable outcomes. The area is 16 square units in total so this is the number of possible outcomes. P(blue)=$\frac{6}{16}$ -simplify- p(blue)=$\frac{3}{8}$
