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:

white or green?

#### Solution

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

n(s)=34

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

Probability for drawing s white or green ball=(n(E))/(n(S)=)24/34=12/17
