Question

A bag contains 3 red balls, 4 blue balls and 1 yellow ball, all the balls being identical in shape and size. If a ball is taken out of the bag without looking into it; find the probability that the ball is: 

red 

Solution

Total number of balls in the bag=3+4+1=8 balls 

Number of possible outcomes=8=n(s) 

Event of drawing a red ball ={R,R,R} 

n(E)=3 

Probability of drawing a reddd ball=`(n(E))/(n(S))=3/8`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
