Solution

The bag contains 7 black and 4 red balls,

i.e., 7 + 4 = 11 balls.

∴ 3 balls can be drawn out of 11 balls in 11C3 ways.

∴  n(S) = 11C3

Let event A: All 3 balls drawn are black.

There are 7 black balls.

∴ 3 black balls can be drawn from 7 black balls in 7C3 ways.

∴ n(A) = 7C3

∴ P(A) = `("n"("A"))/("n"("S"))`

= `(""^7"C"_3)/(""^11"C"_3)`

= `(7 xx 6 xx 5)/(11 xx 10 xx 9)`

= `7/33`
