Course

#### Question

A bag contains 100 identical marble stones which are numbered 1 to 100. If one stone is drawn at random from the bag, find the probability that it bears:

a number divisible by 4 or 5

#### Solution

Total number of possible outcomes=100

Number which are divisible by 4 or 5=4,5,8,10,12,15,16,20,24,25,28,30,32,35,36,40,44,45,48,50,52,55,56,60,64,65,68,70,72,75,76,80,84,85,88,90,92,95,96,100

Nimber of faavorable outcomes=40

p(numer divisible by 4 or 5)=40/100=2/5
