This problem has to do with *probability*.

Probability is the likelihood that something will, or will not happen.

Do not read the bottom of the page before you are finished doing each step of the problem.

1. Pick a number from 1-9. |

2. Subtract 5 |

3. Multiply by 3 |

4. Multiply the number you have by itself
(for example, 6 x 6 = 36, 8 x 8 = 64) |

5. Add the digits together until you get only one digit
(for example 36 -> 3 + 6 = 9, 64 -> 6 + 4 = 10 -> 1 + 0 = 1) |

6. If the number is less than 5, add 5 (for example, 1 is less than 5 so 1 + 5 = 6). Otherwise, subtract 4 (for example, 9 - 4 = 5) |

7. Multiply by 2 |

8. Substract 6 |

9. Map the digit to a letter in the alphabet where 1=A, 2=B, 3=C, etc., |

10. Pick a name of a country that begins with that letter |

11. Take the second letter in the country name and think of an animal |

12. Think of the colour of that animal |
