Work Step by Step

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 green is 3 square units and the white is 4 square units. The green and white area is 7 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(green or white)=$\frac{7}{16}$
