#### Question

A bag contains 10 red balls, 16 white balls and 8 green balls. A ball is drawn out of the bag at random. What is the probability that the ball drawn will be:

not red?

#### Solution

Total number of possible outcomes = 10+16+8=34 balls

n(s)=34

Favorable outcomes for not a red ball= favourable outcomes for white or green ball

Number of favorable outcome for white or green ball=16+8=24=n(E)

Probability for not drawing a red ball =`(n(E))/(n(s))=24/34=12/17`
