A box contains 150 bulbs out of which 15 are defective. It is not possible to just look at a bulb and tell whether or not it is defective. One bulb is taken out at random from this box. Calculate the probability that the bulb taken out is:

a defective one

Solution

Total number of possible outcomes =150

Number of bulbs which are defective=15

P(taking out a defective bulb)=15/150=1/10
