# On a spinner, #P(3) = 2/5# and the #P(4) = 3/8#, what is the probability of getting 3 or 4?

And so with the spinner, we do the same thing - we add the probabilities together:

To find the probability of getting a 3 or a 4 on the spinner, we simply add the probabilities of getting each outcome.

P(3 or 4) = P(3) + P(4)

Given that P(3) = 2/5 and P(4) = 3/8, we can substitute these values into the equation:

P(3 or 4) = 2/5 + 3/8

To add these fractions, we need a common denominator, which is 40. So, we convert the fractions:

2/5 = 16/40 3/8 = 15/40

Now, we can add them:

P(3 or 4) = 16/40 + 15/40 = 31/40

Therefore, the probability of getting a 3 or a 4 on the spinner is 31/40.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
