**9.(ii)**** **If -digit numbers greater than are randomly formed from the digits and , what is the probability of forming a number divisible by when, (ii) the repetition of digits is not allowed?

(ii)
Since 4-digit numbers greater than 5000 are to be formed,
The place digit can be filled up by either 7 or 5 in ways
Since repetition is not allowed,
The remaining 3 places can be filled by remaining 4 digits in ways.
Total number of 4-digit numbers greater than 5000 =
We know, a number is divisible by 5 if unit’s place digit is either 0 or 5.

A person is selected at random from this group to act as a spokesperson. What is the probability that the spokesperson will be either male or over years?

Given,
Total number of persons = 5
No. of male spokesperson = 3
No. of spokesperson who is over 35 years of age = 2
Let E be the event that the spokesperson is a male and F be the event that the spokesperson is over 35 years of age.
Since only one male is over 35 years of age,
We know,
Therefore, the probability that the spokesperson will either be a male or over 35 years of age is .

Given, P(A) = 0.54, P(B) = 0.69, P(A B) = 0.35
And, P(A B) = 0.88
(iii) P(A B') = P(A-B) = P(A) - P(A B)
= 0.54 - 0.35 = 0.19
P(A B') = 0.19

**7.(ii) ** A and B are two events such that , and . Find (ii)

**7.(i) ** A and B are two events such that , and Find (i)

Given, P(A) = 0.54, P(B) = 0.69, P(A B) = 0.35
(i) We know, P(A B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A B)
P(A B) = 0.54 + 0.69 - 0.35 = 0.88
P(A B) = 0.88

**6. ** Three letters are dictated to three persons and an envelope is addressed to each of them, the letters are inserted into the envelopes at random so that each envelope contains exactly one letter. Find the probability that at least one letter is in its proper envelope.

Given, 3 letters are put in 3 envelopes.
The number of ways of putting the 3 different letters randomly = 3!
Number of ways that at least one of the 3 letters is in the correct envelope

(ii) P(1 or 3)

Total number of faces of a die = 6
(ii) P (1 or 3) = P (not 2) = 1 − P (2)
Therefore, required probability P(1 or 3) is 0.5
