Experimental Probability of Simple Events

spinning a spinner that has 5 equal sections marked 1 through 5 and landing on an even number picking a diamond from a standard deck of playing cards which has 13 cards in each of four suits: spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs What is the probability of not rolling a 5 on a standard number cube? A spinner has 3 equal sections that are red, white, and blue. What is the probability of not landing on blue? A spinner has 5 equal sections marked 1 through 5. What is the probability of not landing on 4? There are 4 queens in a standard deck of 52 cards. You pick one card at random. What is the probability of not picking a queen?

Do the outcomes appear likely?
Describe the three outcomes using the words likely and unlikely.

What are two different ways you could find the experimental probability of the event that Martin does not draw a red marble?

A toy machine has equal numbers of red, white, and blue foam balls which it releases at random. Ross wonders which color ball will be released next. Describe how you could use a standard number cube to predict the answer.
