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 good one

#### Solution

Total number of possible outcome =150

Out of 150 bulbs, 15 are defective

Number of bulbs which are good 150-15=135

P(taking out a  good bulb)=135/150=9/10
