12 State Test NGA Create a large spinner for a game that has at least eight sectors. Each sector should be assigned a different prize. Prizes should range in value from most appealing to least appealing. Vary the sectors so that the probability to win a desired prize is much less that the probability to win a lesser desired prize. Calculate the theoretical probability of landing on each prize. Conduct multiple trials with the spinner and determine the experimental probability of landing on each prize. Which price has the greatest probability and which prize has the least probability?
