Course

#### 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?
