Question

A ball is drawn at random from a box containing 12 white, 16 red and 20 green balls. Determine the probability that the ball drawn is: 

not green 

Solution

Total number of balls in the box=48 

Total possible outcomes on drawing   a ball=48 

n(s)=48   

Event of  drawing a green ball=E=2

n(E)=20  

Probability of drawing a  green ball =`(n(E))/(n(s))=20/48=5/12` 

Probability of not drawing a green ball =`1-5/12 =(12-5)/12=7/12`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
