#### Solution

**`4/5`**

**Explanation;**

Hint:

Sample space (S) = 10 + 15 + 25 = 50

n(S) = 50

Let A be the event of getting ₹ 500 note

n(A) = 15

P(A) = `("n"("A"))/("n"("S")) = 15/50`

Let B be the event of getting ₹ 200 note

n(B) = 25

P(B) = `("n"("B"))/("n"("S")) = 25/50`

Probability of the note is either a ₹ 500 note or ₹ 200 note

P(A) + P(B) = `15/50 + 25/50`

= `40/50`

= `4/5`
