Unformatted text preview: times, and on C 9 times. Compute the empirical probability that the spinner will land on B. [pic] A=6, B=21, C=9. The empirical probability of the spinner landing on B is 21/36 = 7/12 or 0.583 = 58.3% 4. If a person is randomly selected, find the probability that his or her birthday is not in May. Ignore leap years. There are 31 days in May and 365 days in a year. 365 – 31 = 334 days that are not in May. 334/365 or 0.915 = 91.5% probability that his birthday is not in May. 5. The chart below gives the number of vehicle tags sold in each city. [pic] One car is selected at random from the cars with vehicle tags from these cities. What is the probability that this car is from Salem? There are 1773 occurrences of a car being from Salem out of a total of 12141 possible outcomes resulting in there being a 1773/12141 = 197/1349 or 0.146 = 14.6% probability the car is from Salem....
