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: 

red or white

Solution

Total number of balls in the box=48  

Total possible outcomes on drawing g ball=48 

n(s)=48 

red or a white ball =12+16=28 balls 

Event of drrawing a red or white ball=E=28 

n(E)=28 

Probability of not drawing a green ball= `(n(E))/(n(s))=28/488=7/12`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
