Theoretical Probability

A spinner has 3 red panels, 3 blue panels and 2 yellow panels. The panels are all the same size. Solve for the theoretical probability that the wheel will land on blue.

Could anyone tell me how I would go about solving this problem? Thanks!

(P.s., I realize that this problem has to do with probability and could probably go under the "Probability" board; however, this is a problem I came across in my Algebra class, so I figured it would be appropriate here.)

$P[\text{blue}] = \dfrac{\text{blue area}}{\text{total area}}$
