Solution

Total number of balls = 5 + 6 + 9 = 20

1) Number of green balls 9 Number of favourable cases

∴ P(Green ball) = `"Number of favourable cases"/"Total number of balls" = 9/20`

2) Number of white balls 5, Number of red balls 6

Number of favourable cases = 5 + 6 = 11

∴ P(White ball or Red ball) = `"Number of favourable cases"/"Total number of balls" = 11/20`

3) P(Neither green ball nor white ball) P(Red ball)

`= "Number of Red balls"/"Total number of balls"`

`= 6/20 = 3/10`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
