Question 9

A box contains 5 red marbles, 8 white marbles and 4 green marbles. One marble is taken out of the box at random. What is the probability that the marble taken out will be (i) red ? (ii) white ? (iii) not green?

Answer

**Total no. of marbles = 17**

(i) Total no. of red marbles = 5

Probability of getting red marbles = 5/17

(ii) Total no. of white marbles = 8

Probability of getting white marbles = 8/17

(iii) No. of not green marbles

= total no. of marbles – no. of green marbles

= 17 – 4= 13

Probability of getting not green marbles = 13/17
