# If you have a spinning wheel with 3 green sectors, 1 blue sector and 1 red sector, what is the probability of getting a green sector? What is the probability of getting a non blue sector?

**Solution:**

We know that,

Probability = Number of favorable outcomes/Total number of outcomes

Given that there is a spinning wheel with 3 green sectors, 1 blue sector and 1 red sector

Total number of sectors = 5

Total number of green sectors = 3

Therefore, probability of getting a green sector = 3/5

Total number of blue sectors = 1

Total number of non-blue sectors = 5 – 1 = 4

Therefore, the probability of getting a non-blue sector = 4/5
