#### Solution

The total number of trials is 200.

Remember the empirical or experimental or observed frequency approach to probability.

If n be the total number of trials of an experiment and A is an event associated to it such that A happens in m-trials. Then the empirical probability of happening of event is denoted by P (A)  and is given by

P (A) =m/n

(i) Let be the event of liking mathematics.

The number of times A happens is 135.

Therefore, we have

P (A) =135/200

= 0.675

(ii) Let B be the event of disliking mathematics.

The number of times B happens is 65.

Therefore, we have

P (B) =65/200

= 0.325
