A lot consists of 144 ball pens of which 20 are defective and the others are good. Nuri will buy a pen if it is good, but will not buy if it is defective. The shopkeeper draws one pen at random and gives it to her. What is the probability that She will buy it?

#### Solution

Total number of pens = 144

Total number of defective pens = 20

Total number of good pens = 144 − 20 = 124

Probability of getting a good pen = 124/144 = 31/36

P (she buys a pen) = 31/36
