Box A contains 25 slips of which 19 are marked Rs 1 and other are marked Rs 5 each. Box B contains 50 slips of which 45 are marked Rs 1 each and others are marked Rs 13 each. Slips of both boxes are poured into a third box and reshuffled. A slip is drawn at random. What is the probability that it is marked other than Rs 1 ?
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 slips = 25 + 50 = 75
Slips marked other than 1 = Rs. 5 slips + Rs. 13 slips
= 6 + 5 = 11
Favourable cases = 11
Probability that slips is not marked 1
