A box contains 7 red balls, 8 green balls and 5 white balls. A ball is drawn at random from the box. Find the probability that the ball is:

white

Solution

Ttotal number of balls in the box =7+8+5=20 balls

Total possible outcomes=20=n(s)

Event of drawing a white ball=E= number of white balls

Probability of drawing a white ball= (n(E))/(n(s))=5/20=1/4
