Question

Nine cards (identical in all respects) are numbered 2 to 10. A card is selected from them at random. Find the probability that the card selected will be:  

 an even number or a multiple of 3 

Solution

There are 9 cards from which one card is drawn. 

Total number of elementry events = n(E)=9 

From numbers 2 to 10, there are 7 numbers which are even numbers or a multiple of 3 i.e. 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10
Favorable number of events = n(E) = 7 

Probability of selecting a card with a number which is an even number or a multiple of 3 = 

`(n(E))/(n(s))=7/9` 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
