Solution

\[\text{ Number of red balls }= 3\]
\[\text{ Number of black balls } = 5 \]
\[\text{ Number of white balls } = 4\]
\[\text{Total number of balls } = 3 + 5 + 4 = 12\]
\[\text{ Therefore, the total number of cases is }12 . \]

\[\text{ Since there are 3 red balls, the number of favourable outcomes is 3  }. \]
\[P\left(\text{ a red ball } \right) = \frac{\text{ Number of favourable cases }}{\text{ Total number of cases }} = \frac{3}{12} = \frac{1}{4}\]
