    Answer:

    The total number of possible outcomes are:

    64

    Step-by-step explanation:

    It is given that:

    Louisa spins the spinner below twice.

    The spinner is numbered from 1-8.

    Now, on spinning the spinner twice we obtain the sample space as:

    (1,1)   (1,2)………………..(1,8)

    (2,1)  (2,2)……………….(2,8)

    (3,1)   (3,2)………………(3,8)

    (4,1)   (4,2)………………(4,8)

    (5,1)   (5,2)………………(5,8)

    (6,1)   (6,2)………………(6,8)

    (7,1)   (7,2)………………(7,8)

    (8,1)   (8,2)………………(8,8)

    Hence, the total number of outcomes is equal to the number of elements in sample space.

    Hence, the total number of possible outcomes are:

    64

    There are 8 outcomes for each spin.
    So for two spins there are 8*8=64 possible outcomes, order counts, i.e. 5-3 is different from 3-5.
