#### Question

Hundred identical cards are numbered from 1 to 100. The cards The cards are well shuffled and then a card is drawn. Find the probability that the number on card drawn is:

greater than 85

#### Solution

There are 100 cards from which one card is drawn.

Total number of elementary event =n(s0=100

From numbers 1 to 100 there are 15 numbers which are greater than 85 i.e {86,87,.......98,99,100} favorable number of event =n(E) =15

Probabilty of selecting card with a number greater than 85=

(n(E))/(n(s))-15/100-3/20

Is there an error in this question or solution?
