Sum

A bag contains 3 red balls, 4 blue balls and 1 yellow ball, all the balls being identical in shape and size. If a ball is taken out of the bag without looking into it; find the probability that the ball is:

yellow

#### Solution

Total number of balls in the bag=3+4+1=8 balls

Number of possible outcomes=8=n(s)

Event of drawing a yellow ball={Y}

n(E) = 1

Probability of drawing a yellow ball =(n(E))/(n(s))=1/8
