# A Letter of English Alphabet is Chosen at Random. Determine the Probability that the Chosen Letter is Consonant. - Mathematics

A letter of English alphabet is chosen at random. Determine the probability that the chosen letter is consonant.

#### Solution

There are 26 letters in English alphabets.

∴ Total number of outcomes = 26

We know that there are 5 vowels and 21 consonants in English alphabets.

∴ Total number of favourable outcomes = 21

∴ Probability that the chosen letter is a consonant = "Total number of favourable outcomes"/"Total number of outcomes"=21/26
