A box contains a certain number of balls. Some of these balls are marked A, some are marked B and the remaining are marked C. When a ball is drawn at random from the box P(A) = `1/3` and P(B) =`1/4`. If there are 40 balls in the box which are marked C, find the number of balls in the box.
A box contains a certain number of balls. On each of 60% balls, letter A is marked. On each of 30% balls, letter B is marked and on each of remaining balls, letter C is marked. A ball is drawn from the box at random. Find the probability that the ball drawn is:
i. marked C
ii. A or B
iii. neither B nor C
