P(orange)=$\frac{1}{2}$

Work Step by Step

Orange section=2 Blue section=1 Green section=1 Total sections=4 P(event)=$\frac{numberoffavorableoutcomes}{numberofpossibleoutcomes}$ The number of possible outcomes is 4 because that is the total number of sections. 2 sections are orange so that is the number of favorable outcomes. P(orange)=$\frac{2}{4}$ -simplify- P(orange)=$\frac{1}{2}$
