#### Question

A bag contains twenty Rs 5 coins, fifty Rs 2 coins and thirty Re 1 coins. If it is equally likely that one of the coins will fall down when the bag is turned upside down, what is the probability that the coin:

will neither be a Rs 5 coin nor be a Re 1 coin?

#### Solution

Total number of coins =20+50+30=100

Total possible outcomes=100=n(s)

Number of favorable outcomes for niether Re1 nor Rs5 coins= Number of favourable outcomes for  Rs2 coins=50= n(E)

Probability (neither Re 1 nor Rs 5 coin)=(n(E))/(n(s))=50/100=1/2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
