Course

#### Question

A ball is drawn at random from a box containing 12 white, 16 red and 20 green balls. Determine the probability that the ball drawn is:

red

#### Solution

Total number of balls in the box=48

Total possible outcomes on drawinng a ball =48

n(s)=48

Event of drawing a red ball=E=16

n(E)=16

Probability of drawing a  red  ball = (n(E))/(n(s))=16/48=1/3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
