Answer. [0.69]
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 envelopes = 1000
 Envelopes with no cash prize = Total envelopes – envelopes with cash prize
= 1000 – 10 – 100 – 200 = 690
Favourable cases = 690
Probability = \frac{Number\, of\, favourable\ cases }{Total\, number\, of\, cases}
Probability that the envelope is no cash prize = \frac{690}{1000}= \frac{69}{100}= 0\cdot 69
