#### Question

Gopi buys a fish from a shop for his aquarium. The shopkeeper takes out one fish at random from a tank containing 5 male fish and 8 female fish (see Figure). What is the probability that the fish taken out is a male fish?

#### Solution

Total number of fishes in a tank

= Number of male fishes + Number of female fishes

= 5 + 8 = 13

Probability of getting a male fish = "Number of favorable outcomes"/"total Number of outcomes"

= 15/3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
