Question

A bag contains 16 colored balls. Six are green, 7 are red and 3 are white. A ball is chosen, without looking into the bag. Find the probability that the ball chosen is:

green or red or white

Solution

Balls in the bag=16= Number of balls that could be drawn

n(s)=16

E= Event of drawing a green or a white or a red ball= number of green balls++number of white balls+number of red balls=6+3+7=16

n(E)=16

Probability of drawing a green or a white or a red ball=

(n(E))/(n(s))-16/16-1

Is there an error in this question or solution?
