(i) Answer. [5/6]
Solution. Probability; Probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one
Total balls = red + white + blue
24 = x + 2x + 3x
6x = 24
x = 4
Red balls = x = 4
White balls = 2x = 2 × 4 = 8
Blue balls = 3x = 3 × 4 = 12
Probability = $\frac{Number\, of\, favourable\ cases }{Total\, number\, of\, cases}$
Probability that ball is not red = $\frac{blue+white}{24}$

$= \frac{8+12}{24}= \frac{20}{24}= \frac{5}{6}$

(ii) Answer. [1/3]
Solution. Probability; Probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one
Total balls = red + white + blue
24 = 6x
x = 4
white balls = 2x = 2 × 4 = 8
Favourable cases = 8
Probability = $\frac{Number\, of\, favourable\ cases }{Total\, number\, of\, cases}$
Probability of getting on white ball = $\frac{8}{24}= \frac{1}{3}$
