Probability of occurrence of an event -

Let S be the sample space then the probability of occurrence of an event E is denoted by P(E) and it is defined as 

P\left ( E \right )=\frac{n\left ( E \right )}{n\left ( S \right )}

P\left ( E \right )\leq 1

P(E)=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\left(\frac{r}{n} \right )



- wherein

Where n repeated experiment and E occurs r times.


  Total Sum A.P series is 


=\frac{9}{2}\left [ 2+18 \right ]=\frac{9}{2}\times 20

9\times 10=90

and  3 number are chosen from

20 number is  20_{C_{3}}

\therefore Required Probability =\therefore \frac{90}{20_{C_{3}}}=\frac{90}{1410}
