Solution

Total no. of possible outcomes = 100 + 200 + 50 = 350 {100 red, 200 yellow & 50 blue}

E ⟶ getting neither yellow nor a blue card

No. of favourable outcomes = 350 – 200 – 50 = 100 {removing 200 yellow & 50
blue cards}

Probability =`"No.of favorable outcomes"/"Total no.of possible outcomes"`

P(E) = 100/350 = 2/7
