One ticket is drawn at random from a bag containing tickets numbered 1 to 40. The probability that the selected ticket has a number which is a multiple of 5 is
(A) (B) (C) (D)
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 tickets = 40
Number of tickets multiple of 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40
Total favourable cases = 8
Let A be the event of getting a ticket with number multiple of 5.
