0.18

Step-by-step explanation:

The individual probabilities of each person eating the next fry must sum to 111. We know this because exactly one of the five people must eat each fry.

\begin{aligned}\text{P(M})+\text{P(R})+\text{P(L})+\text{P(A})+\text{P(C})&=1\\\\ 0.3+\text{P(R)}+0.1+0.32+0.1 &= 1 \\\\ \text{P(R)} &= 1-0.3-0.1-0.32-0.1 \\\\ \text{P(R)} & = \blueD{0.18} \end{aligned}

P(M)+P(R)+P(L)+P(A)+P(C)

0.3+P(R)+0.1+0.32+0.1

P(R)

\begin{aligned}\text{P(M})+\text{P(R})+\text{P(L})+\text{P(A})+\text{P(C})&=1\\\\ 0.3+\text{P(R)}+0.1+0.32+0.1 &= 1 \\\\ \text{P(R)} &= 1-0.3-0.1-0.32-0.1 \\\\ \text{P(R)} & = \blueD{0.18} \end{aligned}

P(M)+P(R)+P(L)+P(A)+P(C)
