#### 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 not be a Rs 2 coin?

#### Solution

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

Total possible outcomes=100=n(s)

Number of favorable outcomes for not a Rs 1 or Rs 5 coins=30+20+50=n(E)

Probability (not Rs 2 coin) =`(n(E))/(n(S))=50/100=1/2 `

Is there an error in this question or solution?
