# At a Birthday Party, the children spin a wheel to get a gift. Find the probability of

(a) getting a ball

(b) getting a toy car

(c) any toy except a chocolate

**Solution:**

There are 8 sectors in the pie chart

(i) Probability of getting a ball is 2/8 = 1/4 since ball is in two sectors out of 8 sectors

(ii) Probability of getting a toy car is 3/8 since toy car is in 3 sectors

(iii) Getting any toy except chocolate = total - chocolate = 8 - 1 = 7

Probability = 7/8

**✦ Try This:** At a Birthday Party, the children spin a wheel to get a gift. Find the probability of
