Can you now finish the problem ..........

A odd number only comes from multiplying an odd and odd..............

can you finish the problem........

We know that even number comes from multiplying an even and even, even and odd, or odd and even

and also a odd number only comes from multiplying an odd and odd,

There are few cases to find the probability of spinning two odd numbers from  1

Multiply the independent probabilities of each spinner getting an odd number together and subtract it from  1 we get.......

$1 - \frac{2}{4} \times \frac{2}{3}$= $1 - \frac{1}{3} = \frac{2}{3}$
