#### 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:

not white

#### Solution

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

n(s)=16

Not a white ball =16-3=13=E n(E)=3

n(E)=13

Probability of not drawing a white ball = (n(E))/(n(s))=13/16
