uh, I mean probability with independent outcomes, heh.

A wheel I'm spinning twice has 8 different colours(among them the colour red). It will then give two different outcomes. Q: What is the probability that the outcome will give the colour red at least once.

((1/8)x(7/8))x2/3

or

((1/8)x(7/8))x((1/8)(1/8))

Neither gives the result 0.234, which is the answer. 0_o
